God’s Smile January 25 2014



Looks out every morning

At the living souls

And smiles

On the world he created.

And because he is an artist,

A craftsman,

An architect of lovely acts.

He continues his work

On the not quite finished canvas

If you look closely, we are all sketched in.

What aspirations does he have today?

How near is it to completion?

Small Stone 2014

Fine winter drizzle
Gray cloak of clouds hover
In quiet slumber

January is the month of Mindful Writing: Small stones

Small Stones - 2014

What are small stones?

A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the “alive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. In short … OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!

Carpe Diem’s 2nd episode of the “Use that Quote” Challenge

Carpe Diem’s 2nd episode of the “Use that Quote” Challenge.  The goal is to write a haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka inspired on a given quote.

Today’s quote: “Forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair” ~~ Khalil Gibran

My Bare feet patter

Playfully scuffing the earth

Wind sifting through toes
