Closed Eye Vantage Points

Window shopping for day dreams

Looking in from afar

Translucent obstructions separating life from reality drift away

Vantage points open up despite closing eyes

Cool breezes awaken my spirit

Hope for tomorrow draws me in

An invitation happily accepted

Eventually Turns to Light

Guessing life lines through wind storms

The delayed blessings of painful messages lie hidden beneath the sand

Recalling yesterday’s forever, an eternity that ran its course

Never ending darkness eventually turns to light

Each Breath


Slowly inhale our love as we surround you

Filling your lungs with family

Long exhales, releasing fear and anxiety

Creating space for another breath of us, of life

Eyes closed, breathe, calm your nerves

We are here, by your side always


Circles run in opposite directions

Grains roll slowly between, following before they fall

A pinch turns empty, motion and inertia stop, waiting – listening

The space between the first turn and your voice draws closer, gaps begin to close

Hope falls lightly from above
