Sun Clouds

Spring Light

Mountain Air

Sunrise to Sunset

her grief
and tears
a hush
the sparkle
of sunshine

gull cry
what’s still left
from my past

fallen leaf
so alive
with sunset

I Notice

A heaviness inside I wish I could stop focusing on

I notice

A blast of heavenly redwood and faded embers deep in my nose
Skin tingling
One sweet memory of childhood

I notice

A trail filled with fallen leaves
Faded sunset
Still alive under my feet

I notice

Deep breathing as I keep pushing-
Pushing through the slight dryness of my tongue
A chorus of feathered singers chime along
To my heartbeat

I notice

A delicate touch of a small fern
Its vulnerability clear to me
A tiny voice reminding me to trust

I notice

sticks, leaves, and fallen trees
I release what no longer serves me

I notice

One summer night…

flock of blackbirds
I open my arms
closer to sunset
