Sky Poems : : Hungry Wolf

sky-poem-28 

Hungry Wolf

When the hungry wolf
comes nipping at your heart,
snarling after something
you long for,
sit by the window
and feel the air
as it touches your face.

Here you are
rolling through the rich world.
Love the wolf, love the wind,
Love it all and find peace.

Sky Poems : : Empty

sky-poem-27 

Empty

Empty means:
ready to be filled.

Clean out your closets,
clean out your mind.
Make room
for new to enter.

Wait and see
what comes.

Sky Poems : : Build Your House of Water

sky poem 26 

Build Your House of Water

Clench a thought in your hands,
build your home with it,
and one day the wind will come
and topple it over.

Build your house of water or air
(the flowing of things),
and you will always be home.

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

skypoems23

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

skypoems22 

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.
