Ice Dragon

DSCF6349.2 RSC

The rock of the Berry Falls
Has an Ice Dragon hiding in plain site
He rests between the cracks
In between the light

Whisper shadow footfalls
Tails rush to burn
Wind shift through
Other sides emerge

The ice forms around the pilings
Like plaque around an aging tooth

Presence Rising

“Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth… It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.”
~ Sigurd Olson


Gathered

Red Raven Retreat, MN | July 2012

It seems as if the ferns have gathered my tears
Pooled with the reflection of the sky
Let these tears nourish all things living
Let these tears inter all things that have passed


Direction

Gull Lake, MN | July 2012

If my aim is true I head in the direction I intend.

My velocity is the effort I put into that aim and the depth is a product of that effort. 

If my aim misses then I must accept I have ended up in a direction differing from my vision but if I accept I will always better my depth.

Should time run out and I no longer can take aim and cast out, then it will be time to turn in and savor all that has past before.

Hidden

Hidden inside the bleak torrent of the thunder storm
Folded in a tight bud
Summer waits
For the expected
