thoughts for morning -

mjd - rise awaken and shine 2015

as the sun rises
and the moon sets

may i begin my day
awake.

may i move through
each moment
mindfully
lightly 
and with clarity.

a heart
bursting with love
a mind
propped open,
may i shine
to lessen
the darkness
of another being's 
suffering.

surrender

mjd - 2015 - plant skeletons


open to the stillness
between winter and spring,

though the earth 
beneath your feet 
is charged with eager life.

bear witness
to the skeletal remains
of those 
who have burst forth,
lived
weathered storms
and died.

bear witness 
to a seemingly
fragile nature
that is belied 
by great strength 
and 
great tenacity. 

this story
is like your own.

you stand.

between heaven
and earth
you are rooted
and soaring - 

in that balance
in that exquisite place
may you thrive.

mjd - 2015 - be still/printemps

thawing is happening here,

revealing
tender things.

trusting green shoots
and 
open hearts

that will soon belie
their fragile appearance
with a blossoming

worthy only
of the strong.

mlle printemps made her first appearance yesterday, international women's day. it seems to have given her some forcefulness as she did not tiptoe. with crashing icicles and running rivers of thaw, she made clear that she had waited long enough.

today this little one poked his/her head out to see what kind of progress was being made.
