Black is white he said,
They believe him, without clothes,
Lies, when I seek truth.

How can I find peace?
In this battle with the dark?
Trust with all your might.

First, believe in light,
Then know all is possible,
With the God of all.

Love will conquer all,
Lives connected, mighty force,
Focused on one goal.

Pray again, I must,
Letting go of fear and rage,
Knowing how to be.

Let me shine my light,
Guiding others through the dark,
Dawn disperses night.

Can I find the peace?
Thinking of the birds and trees?
Life beyond the man?

Struggle in my soul,
Anger, rage wants to win out,
Smother light in dark.

But that isn’t me,
Light is what I’m all about,
Searching for it so.

I can only do,
What is mine to do in love,
I believe in light.

I am here!

Thank you, God of All,
For this home, these things, for all,
I feel happy now.

Why am I drawn here?
Beautiful, but many are,
Magic for me here.

Sharon lived here once,
Deer in summer sublet too,
Mt. Tam over all.

Ilona, my friend,
Rita giving everywhere,
Unity was here.

LynEl was nearby,
And my Spyglass outlook home,
Views of trees to sea.

But it’s of the heart,
Mysteries do not explain,
Simply there they are.

And my life was here,
Whether there or over here,
Many years of life.

Some friends are across,
Some are here, some up the coast,
Others in So. Cal.

And my T back east,
Sister of the Soul and heart,
On her way as well.

Carolina friends,
Family all, I’l miss them too,
But I’ll see on zoom!

I know God will guide,
SR with her gifts and grief,
Joy will soon be hers!

Janice class right now,
More to serve as I learn how,
Right now feel the peace.

Grateful for Deer on This Moving Day

Thank you, my dear God,
For this home and things I love,
All in flow these days.

Thank you, God of All,
For the deer, the hills, the Bay,
I feel so at home.

Thank you, oh dear God,
For my loved ones here and there,
All as one in heart.

Thank you, God of All,
For all blessings large and small,
Even near seawall.

That was quite a stretch,
Rhyming words instead of small,
Grateful for it all.

Now I have it all,
Well, in hours, in this same day,
Lucky so am I.

Even in this town,
Deer come down and linger here,
Fills my heart with joy.

Soon I will go out,
Bedframe, such for movers, yes,
Sleep in my own bed!

Grateful still I am,
For the airbed, sheets and sleep,
Furniture a thrill!

Still too much have I,
Wanting just to travel light,
More I will let go.

It seems hard to sit,
Writing while the research calls,
Still, it feeds my soul.

Compassion today,
For myself and others too,
Sending love all ways.

After Dad had died,
Deer came to me in that yard,
Is that you, Dad, now?

Whether then or now,
You and mom are with me now,
Energy alive.

Thank you, God of All,
For protection, love and joy,
With me all my days.
