Naming the Wind


You are the wind no one can see.
The cleansing breath that flows in me.
The steady, soft enduring light,
Enduring through the darkest night.
You are the wind no one can see.
Sweet breath of life. My breath. Sheri.

Moss on Trees




Moss on Trees

I’ve learned to trust your inklings
Like a hiker trusts the moss that grows
On the North side of the trees.
Or is it the South side?
The East? 
The West?

Of course, this only matters to hikers
And, I am not a hiker.

Still, I know
They map their trek
Through the pathless wild.
They traverse sole piercing terrain
On the moss's nod.

There’s comfort found in
Moss that grows on trees.
Credible proof that the sun
Has at least one rule.

I’ve learned to trust your inklings
Because I asked for moss on trees
And the sun sent me to you.
