Blue grey water in spring light,

awakened by the wind

on a gentle southerly course;

waves marching gently

in a children’s parade

without the fury of winter.

I am the settled stone,

the coastal trees reaching down

and the gulls aloft in a soft breeze,

the landscape flooding me

like the morning tide

with the essence of Her religion.

    That’s a little gem, Don. Thank you. Went to Google Earth for Waldron Island. What a kayaker’s paradise.

    Don, I loved hearing your words to begin and now close my day. Mine has been filled with family joy, and sacred contemplation. When I just now read
    Easter .. I could hear the wind, the surf .. feel the peace of your Being .. see the dance of the trees, the gulls, and the landscape. Presence inspiring Presence. Oneness! With love for all the newness you bring to my heart, and to so many others on this Easter Eve.

    What a gentle, uplifting tone….we here in Viroqua had a similar tone at One Spirit Rising with our friend Jim Farrell providing the focus…..
