There will be times when we yell at the universe with questions it seems to not answer. Our fist shakes, voice trembles, eyes cloud with anger, fear, doubt, or anguish. These times are hard. These times do not easily pass with any amount of gratitude. For in our deepest, darkest places -joy whispers and understanding wavers like a feather on the breeze.


I am here to tell you, joy does exist and the universe gives answers. Just not in the way we always expect. Perhaps it is a butterfly dancing, a child’s smile, tree’s sway, cricket chirping, a woman singing, man laughing… perhaps, gratitude in its smallest and most powerful form is simply acknowledging the language of the world to comfort us in hours of greatest need.


Melt the Day

Light a candle

melt the day and let sweet words

seep deep

behind your soul

from lips unread or savored.

Let each syllable

slide into place

make room for breath to sigh

and hope to pause

in anticipation of



….. more




for whispered at the edge of hearing

just inside warmth and longing

words are what move the world

and make poets entertain wishes

wished for carelessly.
