New years eve 12-31-2008

my awareness grows
the night is past with its darkness
and closet monsters.

Day breaks like winter ice under foot
snapping me back to the new, the present, the gift of now.

Old memories and recent pain will not blot out my vision
to see is to know the truth, I will not wink at sin again

Joy is my companion when I walk the better way
Love my neighbor as myself
Love the Father
Love the freedom of submission

I will laugh not at my foolishness, nor at another's folly.
mirth flows from deep within below the scars and callouses

in the depth of winter
gone the leaves
and life of summer
revealing that the ruby stem,
the powder blue fruit
has beauty, too.

Alone, but not lonely
sits the heron on his hunt
patience, bright eyes
and soaking up the heat of the sun.

Oh to be like him
