Dawn Breezes

Coffee with cream,

steaming into dawn as

a sweet breeze sifts my hair.

Eyes closed in stillness

I hear the ocean in these rustling, rustling leaves

as if the trees speak in the language of waves.

And I wonder if, instead

it’s the ocean calling with the voices of trees.

As the rising steam moves softly sideways and away

I imagine these trees speaking of the shore

as

the ocean dreams of the forest.

And coffee with cream

shifts the waves

of morning leaves.

A Little Uncertainty

image

We are heading into uncertain times. The Magic 8 Ball, shaken,

says, “Future Unclear; try again later.”

I can be brave if you’re with me; we’ll hold hands and lean in.

You walk with me and I’ll walk with you.

We are stronger together.

Some days, it’s hard to tell what I need more, the cool Shade or bright Sunshine.

This tree, though, I need this tree.

I need this tree more than this tree needs me

or any of us.

The only ones who need us, it turns out, are one another.

Sunshine and Shade.
