A Road to No Where?

A road to no where?
Barren land?
Maybe possibility…
Maybe sacred space…
With openness; a first step…
Dare I risk myself? 

This taken at Shiprock in New Mexico – a sacred place for the Navajo people.

Sky On Fire…

Sky on fire…
From my window, dawn creation asks,
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
(Mary Oliver, The Summer Day)




Mountain Tops and Valleys

Mountain tops and valleys;
A symbiotic relationship;
An invitation to life…

Earth wakes…

Earth wakes,
Light bathes creation,
Breathless wonder…

(This photo was taken last January just after sunrise in Cades Cove, Smoky Mountains)





We are not alone…

Sometimes life’s view seems to be from the end of a stripped, desolate tree…
Sometimes our living seems to be perched on a jagged ledge.
 
Winter’s wind blowing…
Light fading…
Holding on for life…
 
We look down and realize – we are not alone.
Presence.




Sunset’s kiss…

Kissed by the day’s last light…
anticipated rest…
hope – waiting for a sunrise reunion… 

This was taken last fall on the Choptank River near Easton, MD.





Dare I Go In?

Dare I go in?

I’m already standing in light . . .

Now invited into darkness?

Do I risk the hope of Light on the other side?
