feel the words come

not just the ordinary
blah blah
but the flash of yes
that lights up your spine
and goes forth raw and real
 
the words that don’t give a crop
what others might think
that care deeply for tender and broken parts
that heals and holds the knowing
 
life has brought
the perfect storm of you
 
lightening
 
let your words pour forth

wonder

wonder
at the tree tree1
it stands so tall
forever seemingly
so patient and strong,
but that is just its nature.
 
wonder
at the hummingbird
it’s only task to find nectar
it’s marvelous wings
it’s defiance of everything we know
this little bird
of peep and ruby throat
 
wonder at the blade of grass
one single spire to the sky
resilient and allowing
swaying in the slightest breeze
 
and wonder
wonder at you and me
we here
hands feet heart head
we breathe forth
into the only moment we have
 
full of fear and beauty
fun fluster and folly.
might we come to know
gratitude and wonder
as our best friends
along this tender trail we tread.
