The Spirit of the Heart

The zenith of existence

is in the heart

joy of the spirit

love which does not part

Even when broken

things are hard

a healing process occurs

leaving a scar

Do I become bitter

cower in fear

become a slave

to whatever comes near

Do I choose

freedom to love again

power to experience joy

make new friends

Heart speaks to spirit

charging ahead

rising from what has been lost

wonder instead of dread

Out of the ashes

joy begins to arise

living life to the fullest

giving love that never dies

A Spirit House Cleaning

Riding a broom

around my home

sliding around the corners

starting the new year alone

Smoothly landing

cleaning each room

sweeping out all negative things

anything that threatened doom

Out the door

went the despair

no more crying

this year a life to repair

Next out the door

went everything bitter

a new year now

sun reflecting ice like glitter

Finally out the door

went the anger and fear

time to release it all

love is near

Sun shines brightly

my spirit is cleaned

winter birds sing in joy

life has been redeemed

A New Year’s Stroll

Walking along the path

on a cold winter day

trees filled with ice

sun lighting the way

A cardinal sings

a happy song

welcoming me

as I walk along

Spotting the proper branch

I hang some sunflower seed

an act of kindness

food for creatures in need

Ice crystals sparkle

in the morning sun

prisms filled with color

beautiful webs are spun

Connecting with nature

experiencing a new world

the year is young

peace and harmony unfurl

Smile on my face

calmness in the air

a year of intentional living

life with flair

Meditation over

happiness in my heart

spirit is warmed

by nature’s art
