You are here

Grey clouds float through a pale blue sky

Over a lake, gentle mountains raising up

As I watch, I certainly know

You breathed this same oxygen.

~

Through splintered rays of light

Shining down through a deep, green forest

Remember, remembering you

Shining in those golden beams.

~

Those gentle summer breezes

Touching my skin lightly

I can’t forget, forgetting

This moment of peace and ease.

~

This is a better way to recall you

Better than those nighttime recollections

Where you visit me and pretend

Like we are together, here and now.

~

So come to me everyday

Through nature’s lingering call

Leaves, breezes, animals

Sunsets giving away to twinkling stars.

Summer Dance

I stand here

I listen

I dance in the sunlight

A warm breeze blows over me.

*

I contemplate the movement

Of the seasons

Was it not just cold

Did it not just seem summer would never come?

*

And yet here we are

Looking over a river

Dancing underneath the beating sun

Laughing under a star filled sky.

*

Twirling around

Skirts rise and billow out

We are spinning

We are singing along.

*

The joy of dancing children

All God’s beings

Moving in a sort of praise and gratitude

For this very moment.

*

Let’s continue to dance away the day

And spin underneath the canopy of the stars

Through summer and into fall

Even when we move inside for the quietude of winter.

*

Let’s remain grateful

For the way our bodies move

For the way the music reminds us

Of our certain unity and nature to be love in action.

*

Grant us the ability

To remember gentle summer breezes

On the coldest days ahead

When the dancing is done alone.
