• Love & Energy Spiral

    Thanksgiving

    sun lights red maple
    glowing warmth
    and memory
    summer afternoons gone
     
    crisp breath talks
    to fallen leaves
    collected as treasures
    upon our table
     
    thank-you trees
    and sun and time
     
    children like sunflowers
    energy spirals
    and mindfulness
    winter mornings near
     
    bright appetites linger
    family’s feasting
    savoured as love
    captured in our portrait
     
    thank-you home
    and food and this.

    The Crossing of Candle Eyes

    A poem inspired by Spring, gardens, and the gift of renewal. I found many of these phrases in my notebook from an old writing exercise and decided to work them into a fairy tale this morning. Creating this garden-world and its characters was fun. I’d love to see this illustrated one day!
