Joy and Giving, Fraser River Valley, Coast Mountains, British Columbia, Canada

For All I Have and All that’s Yet to Come

On this day
Of joy and giving
Of gifts received
Of blessings offered
I am most grateful

For all I have
For all that’s yet to come
For all the possibility
Which I can not yet see

And most of all
For the love I give
And am given freely

The love pervading all
On this and every day

The grace we share through love

This Cacophony of Being, Britannia Mine, Britannia Beach, British Columbia, Canada

On the Cacophony of Being

This spirit of life

This beauty
This pain
This anguish
This love

This cacophony of being
That is I
That is experience
That is action

Tension of light and dark
Tension of right and wrong
Never grey
Never muted

That mud of fear
That mud of anger
Gripping at my heart
Gripping at my mind

But I will not
Go under
But I will not
Lie down

Or die
In the silence
Of living
Without venture

Hide

This flowing earth
Which rain does melt
And sun does bake
To make a hide
A flesh so tough
Naught but steel
Can break its skin

And like the earth
I’m toughening
Impervious
To love’s torment
I keep it out
Pretense: content

But even steel
Can’t cleave my soul
And never could
Through toughest hide
I feel my heart

So soon enough
I’ll find my way
To safety’s arms
Then shed this skin
To let you in
