SuziCate's Musings

Desert Flower

You do not have to know everything.

You do not need to stay up late studying existence

Until your eyes water and your heart bleeds.

You only have to know your soul; to heal the wounded marrow

Of your bones, to sing the song in your heart, and to walk

The journey of a thousand dreams meant for you.

Tell me about life, yours, and I will tell you mine.

Meanwhile our hearts continue to beat.

Meanwhile the clouds shed tears across the desert,

Crying for the barren, the lonely, and the thirsty.

Meanwhile the tangerine petals of the Mariposa Lily drink

The sacred juice it knows exists to quench its soul.

So you, when you feel unimportant, looked over,

Remember Holy water runs through your veins

And the world is waiting for you to unfurl your petals

Beneath a shining sky.

Observation

The journey is worth

an arduous climb to view

the beauty of life.

This Moment

Suspended in time,

a pause in the breath of life

while the heart beats on.

Love Song

Oriental, NC 105

Wind knocks at my door.

I turn and walk away as

if no one is home.

Our chests beat like drums.

Neither of us know the words,

but we play the tune.

Closing the Chasm

bridges and nature 044

Bridges cross divides,

 joining worlds once set apart,

making dreams come true.

Open hearts and hands

build bridges across the world;

help make dreams come true.

Make it Count

heart stone

Love and compassion,

let it  get under your skin;

be reckoned with life.

Time in a Bottle

IMG_2241

Freedom, containment…

the ironies of life in

which we thirst and thrive.
