On Macon Rd

On Macon Rd

Silo hales the past

Red barns salute to what is

Seasons come and go

 

Ecstatic flutter

Leaf caught by dervish breezes

A last twirl till free

 

A hundred swans float

Two Hundred white wings teasing

A flock of cygnets

 

Weathered wood tumbled

Barn gives way to gravity

Beauty in this death

 

Rutted country road

A sheen of green hills rolling

A dot of red flight

 

Turtle crosses road

Screech to a halt for saving

Life in the wetlands

 

Cherry trees weeping

Pink flowers in abundance

Beauty brings me tears

NORTHERN MICHIGAN RETREAT


US girls on the road. Big face me.

Tender is the heart in history’s ramble

Shared stories of love and loss lays us open

At the belly of our lives consumption

That fed us for six decades to meet at the

gut and give in the safety of friendship

 

In rush our tears and laughter we tremble 

The weather of us meets in sunrises and tidal waves

Shining and drowning one moment to the next

Grateful for the gathering of heart to heart

In the unexpected wonder how time is meaningless

 

The heart and soul have no time frame or suspense

Love’s flow knows all our sunrises and tempestuous seas

It knows the gratitude of friendship that holds no judgement

In the glory of giving freely all that you have ever been

And have hoped to be in the coral wonder and slamming waves

 

Sacred is the gathering of ourselves laid at this altar

Of surrender under the northern Michigan sky and

The white cap grey of the Big Lake’s vastness

Natures children sharing our elements and seasons together.

LIke the trees, we are naked to each other, fearless to any weather.
