A Treelogy

A Treelogy
who would know that one seed
could grow filling a need
to supply food, shelter
and beauty
seed, tree and wood
a trilogy that could
metaphorically express
our relations
seed holds the potential
tree flowers and expands
wood becomes the material
used for answering our commands
for creative expression
we are here to be
free to grow our expression
of beauty and potential
from our treelogy lesson

Eruptions

Eruptions
eruptions on Earth
can signify a rebirth
especially from the depths
of the oceans
as humans we know
passions held within grow
until there is an eruption
of emotions
once the held-back is released
the pressures have ceased
with a return to calm
and stability

A Metaphor for Life

A Metaphor for Life
we have our patterns
we have our habits
we like to challenge ourselves
but there is movement
imagine swimming a set number
of lengths in a pool
and going for a time record
but unknown to you…
there is slow movement
the length of the pool can be changed
by sliding a divider to even
make 2 pools out of one
not looking up it takes a while
to recognize the game is up
you can’t win it
there is the gift
when movement creates change
we can change to acceptance
drop our personal goals
and simply enjoy
the fun of swimming
