I Give Thanks To The Dawn

I give thanks to the dawn

With a nod of my head to the sun

Birds chip in thanks for the heat

I’ve wonder this world is not yet undone

So Much Of Spring is Faith



So much of spring is faith

A red flower

We were not certain

Would bloom again

Alive once more

It is the unknowns

That winter creates

Which give birth to wonder

Absent Wonder

Sometimes I can’t get the magic out

Wonder is absent from me

So I rise to my feet for a walkabout

To find the obscured I could not see
