Sky Poems : : How Life Unfolds


How Life Unfolds

Whatever is out there
in the darkness ahead of you
does not need you
to unfold.
It will arrive
like leaves on the trees.

Wake up,
go out into the world,
watch life bloom all around.

Sky Poems : : Open Your Hands


Open Your Hands

When you feel clamped down,
packed in a box.

When you keep running in circles
small as a watch face.

Open your hands,
get ready to receive the sky.

Sky Poems : : This Mystery


This Mystery

This mystery
that opens out
in every direction,
that is warm and dark
and holds everything.

This mystery
where you came from,
where you are going,
where you are right now
even when you forget it.

This mystery
will hold you
if you open your arms.

Sky Poems : : Inside



When the day feels dark
and cold as stone,
close your eyes.
Inside, everything
is glittering.

Infinite Possibilities

In any moment
you can
begin again.

Sky Poems : : Everything You Need


Everything You Need

When you long to run out into the future
trying to herd all that will happen
into one known fact,
simply look down.

No need to run,
nothing to chase.
Everything you need
is right here.

My Mysterious Disappearance

Wow, it has been many months since I have blogged here, and you may (or may not) have been wondering where I’ve been.

Excuse #1: I started working a second job this past fall, which allowed much less time for extracurriculars.
Excuse #2: I had a baby!


Miss Ella Rose was born just about 3 weeks ago on the summer solstice. The pregnancy plus the two jobs conspired together to allow very little time and energy to do much more than work and sleep and . . . write. Yes, write! While I was not posting Sky Poems on the blog, I still managed to keep writing them, although at a slower pace.

And now, here I am with a three week old baby. You might say that now seems like the worst time to start blogging again, but I have found over the last three weeks that now more than ever I need to find ways to look up and take an expansive deep breath. And so I have found myself scribbling little Sky Poems more since Ella was born than I did the previous nine months. Also, I will be staying home to care for Ella (no more two jobs) for the near future, which I’m hoping will allow me some little pockets of time to dash off a blog post once in a while. Of course I cannot predict how frequently I will find time to post, but expect to start seeing some Sky Poems again here. I hope you’ll come by now and again for a break and a deep breath.

and then be ready for what will
come pouring from the spring."
