Shadows of Time

Reflecting on the circle of life as I stand on the ocean's edge admiring the sky and the never ending sea...

Letting Go- An Introduction

There is a place, a harbor of wonders sweet grace...
A blue precipice, time on edge, a breathless ledge,
Where sky meets sea and faith revived sails free.

The Winter

By a bare oak tree,
On the rocks and shore of the sea,
I stand and watch in awe the winter sky...

My thoughts are like empty hands
Reaching toward the heavens.

Raw Souls

Austere silhouettes, this tree and I,
Raw souls kindred yet alone-
Only shadows on the ocean vastness
That is so wide and free-

The Cold Wind

In this distant place of solitude...
The cold wind is the voice of time,
And beauty the promise of eternity.
