The Path

image

Alone,
I walked the path
before me.
One footprint at a time,
at times slipping on the icy path
other times falling most ungracefully
deciding whether to try again
I rested there
breathing in and out
I pushed myself to my feet yet again
The path awaited me
Fingers slipped
into my hand
my heart opened my eyes
the path before me transformed
Together we journeyed
sledding, cartwheeling, dancing
Our hearts smiling
I walked the path with love
hand in hand.

Namaste,
L and Muse

What Unites Us

image

Differences divide
in the world we have created
then our eyes turn to Nature
to the sun, the moon, the stars,
the endless ocean waves,
we feel our smallness in a vast Universe
and we are reunited.

Namaste,
L and Muse

O Christmas Tree

image

She acquiesced her freedom
to grow where she was planted
so that she might embody
the spirit of giving, generosity,
the holder of ornate treasures,
the one who bears the light in the darkest days
sacrificing her own life for the joy of others…
She beams in the twilight hours
surrounded by love.

Namaste,
L and Muse
