The Great Lover

Oh unutterable utterance Unrepeatable repetition when my heart drops down to my gut and they mate in their pain how I long for You.   As night closes in and cold hardens the leaves the lower lovers entwine. Dungeon doors clang closed as they couple on dank cement with only a simple grate opening upon a black sky.   […]

We Fall So We Can Rise

On a cloudy autumn day I pedal my bike along a ridge to a hilltop strewn with piñon trees, distant mountains visible in every direction. Elation brims over within me. I turn my bike downhill on a crazy-fun romp. I bank turns, skirt around trees and grind though gravel patches. A broad smile stretches across […]

The Bare Necessities of Life

Chloe Kyle, a participant in my writing class, wrote this inspiring essay. I invite you to journey with her as she discovers what’s truly important in life. In the dark of night, I find myself rigid with spinal pain once again, an experience that has dogged my life since an accident in my teens. My […]

Look Up

So often in our days we gaze downward. Look what can happen with a simple change of viewpoint.   Image: Nordski Trail, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Santa Fe, NM

Be the Harmony You Want to See in the World

I sit in court on the witness stand while the opposition tries to discredit me. “In 2008, did you misread the well meter by thousands of gallons?” the opposing attorney asks. I call on the Beloved. “Yes,” I say. My foot bobs and my voice shakes, but I sit tall and hold my head high. […]
