Through the Open Door

The freeing of the soul offers a peek into heaven through nature's open door...

With the Dawn

Anticipation is the last breath of night.
When the pink of dawn gives depth to the sky
In the warmth of morning’s first light,
My soul takes flight.

In Flight

One with the bright of the sky
That abstract reach of mind
Soars past the treetops glowing display.
My soul spills upon the blue of each day,
Over the fields and beyond –
To the very earth soil where I was born.

The Open Door

Winds from off shore, salt and life,
That longing of belonging-
The mystic wings of my soul
Carry me forever home.

I write poetry to share the beauty surrounding me in my beloved Maine. My hope simply is- in sharing it, you discover the beauty inside you; and write poetry too...

So true... when the door is closed, we are unable to see (or even well imagine) that which lies beyond it ...

You are so lucky that you have seen and
been there to breathe it first hand,
yet I love to smell it second hand too,
Fresh air still soothes my ears.
Lovely and natural.
