May Your Holidays Bring You Joy


The holidays are our celebration of the solstice, a time of year where the past year ends and a new year begins, a time when we experience the darkest day of the year and a shift to ever growing light. It is also a time of reviewing our year so like sculptors we can reshape the coming year in a more productive way. I hope the holidays bring you hope and joy.

THE OPENING OF EYES

That day I saw beneath dark clouds
the passing light over the water
and I heard the voice of the world speak out,
I knew then, as I had before
life is no passing memory of what has been
nor the remaining pages in a great book
waiting to be read.
It is the opening of eyes long closed.
It is the vision of far off things
seen for the silence they hold.
It is the heart after years
of secret conversing
speaking out loud in the clear air.
