Soul Magic

Is it high magic

when people perceive the light

even in darkest hours?


Those who see the light

in the darkest hours are

true magicians of the soul.

Essential Matters

When our hearts shatter

Into shards of grief and loss,

how can we mend the tatters?


To mend our shattered

hearts we must be given love

enough and unhurried time.


In Good Time

When sorrow’s sodden

wrap envelopes soggy souls,

What rekindled their fire?


Knowing that they’ll be

 given warmth and love and not

be hung out to dry.

Wrecked But Not Ruined

When furious winds

fly havoc ’round our spirits,

Who picks up the scattered wrack?


Picking up always

seems to fall to those lucky

enough to survive and care.
