Brighter than an Angel’s Wing

I have seen something
with a brighter glow
Than an angel’s wing
In the face of a human
Rising hopefully
After a fall.

Making Flowers Grow

Your light wanted to lift
My tears to Heaven, one at the time,
But my grief was not ready to leave
And became rain instead,
Giving its lessons back to earth
And making flowers grow
And shallow lakes deepen.

Every Life is a Spring

Every life is a Spring,
A hopeful and fragile thing,
With heavy rains and sunny days,
Our life in every breath.
So new and curious and strange
The path is laid before us,
Yet willfully we bend and push
And leave
Our spirit in every step.
