There are Lights within you

There are as many lights

within you

as there are stars

in the sky.

And there are more lights

being born

every day

than anyone (including yourself)

can ever manage

to extinguish.

Be the Wind that carries You

Close your eyes
and be the bird
upon the wind
stretch your wings
and be the wind
that carries you

Close your eyes
and be the air
that moves the wind
abandon your boundaries
and be the breath
that births the being

Solitude

The moon
is sinking low
behind the pale horizon
and I am alone
haunted by a shadowy sea
of starlit memories
I take my solitude
by the hand
and together we walk
along a prayer-spangled beach
untroubled by the drifting years
of the night
