Night Time Shenanigans

Ever wonder what the trees

are up to at night?

The day ended with green buds,

opened with bursts of white.



So many wonders

missed as we thrash around in

worry’s undertow.


At The Moment

We have an unexpected

gift of time.

Let’s use it creatively.

Let’s not squander it

on unproductive worry

or finger-pointing blame.


The Search

Across the sun-swept hills, a small bird flies

seeking something

beyond as

we do




Catch myself wondering what’s next.

Shift my focus

to that cherry tree,

limbs outstretched,

offering pink blessings

to the sky, to the wonder

that is now.
