The gentle breaking of morning every day
The benediction of the evening breeze
The smell of the rain in the air, on the earth
The soaring freedom of a bird in flight
The shade of the trees in a wood
The butterflies in the garden on a drowsy afternoon
The moon and the stars in a clear winter sky

Woodsmoke, rainbows, ocean waves
pebbles on a riverbank

when I emerge entrancing emerald

But there are spaces that are no color
there are moments of quiet alone with the silence

I haunt the past again

I become a ghost with the others
I hurt and I heal this way.
