The Tree of Forgiveness

sun setting beyond
the shoulders of
mountain gods
ducks swimming
in shadows of
togetherness
two aging souls
musing
dark nights past
sensing
a perceptual edge
in the present
voices grow louder
alongside
sounds of future’s
silence
standing beneath
the tree of
forgiveness
where the gods
take pity
revealing hope
without retreat

Morning Sunrise in West Texas — “Hope Coming To Texas”   Leave a comment

“Hope Coming To Texas” — Image by kenne from Kate’s iPhone

After several years in Ft. Collins, Katie, Nicholas and Matt are moving back to Texas — San Antonio, specifically.

Windmills of Hope

Arriving in Texas
where pickups are still king

Yellow buses grazing 
under a cotton-ball sky

Extreme traffic on the right
sensible on the left

Just remember
I ain’t your dude

You can’t buy me with
a “Two-Step” lottery card

Make it a beer or two
at the old saloon

Times are different
so continue lying to me

Life Is A Circle   Leave a comment

“You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round . . . . . The Sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours . . . . Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.”

— Black Elk, Oglala Sioux Holy Man, 1863-1950
