Spring Day

Warm sun Birds singing Blue sky Breeze blowing Clover smells White clouds Rolling hill Grazing cows Budding trees Green field Cool grass Dirt tilled Hope rises Clearing fog Hearts skip Happy dog

Lent

Twist and turn Beg and plead Write and think Read and Heed Create space Say a prayer Take a breath Make a dare Stretch out my hands Open my stubborn heart Confess the sins I don’t see Wait again to start Strain the eyes Bite the tongue Listen to silence Scream…How long! Realize you’re ignorantContinue reading “Lent”

A Native Hill

“We have lived by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. And this has been based on the even flimsier assumption that we could know with any certainty what was good even for us.
