Nightly Gold

May the glimpse of each
sunset guide us toward joy in
in the coming of dawn.

While on a walk, 
amid a crisp breeze,
when the "perfect" aim
of the neighborhood squirrel
turned my stroll into a crazy game.
May your days be those of unexpected delights!

Someone Needs You

We're sometimes in a place where everything is  moving along smoothly and it's a glorious feeling.  You might note that the pace is
brisk, yet comfortable. 

There's nothing quite like "owning" those moments. When I'm contented with the people around me or circumstances seem to turn from confusion to possibility, it's devine. 

Somewhere however, things are dark and torturous.  Pain and uncertainty rob
your  senses, dull hopes, and crush
dreams you've held so dear.

Give up then if the strength for forgiveness, patience to love, and a realization that
time may never allow you to heal

due to circumstances beyond
your control, are in place.  

Trust me; the time to lie down, slip away
from the sunshine, from the care of
strangers or 
prayers, from your pain
not today; it's never that time.

Look up and get up.
Someone needs
That someone might be a child.
