An Eagle and You …

I’d never seen an eagle at the river before …

But that morning, there it was …

Perched high on the tree near the shore.

And I thought of you

I still always do …

I watched this splendid creature for a while

Sitting confident like he owns the world

and I thought of you

It made me smile.

You left us that day …

Nothing they can do

The doctors say …

I’d like to think that the eagle

carried you and took you away

And came back to the river that day

To tell me … that you were okay



New Year’s Day

I woke to the sound of chirping birds

That New Year’s Day …

The song they were singing

Seemed to say …

“Begin anew

This year is for you

Be free …

Be who you want to be … “

Wisdom finds us in many ways

Even from the squawk of a Blue Jay.




The trees

now scantily clad

Their leaves

tumble to the ground

in heaps …

Like yesterday’s clothes

Laying carelessly on the floor beside the bed.

The November sky

Melancholy … Grey

Time for the soul

To Rest

To Reflect

Winter is on its way.
