Crossed

Cross

Photo by Kim Nelson Malaga, Spain

 

Crossed and double-crossed
We bear it
Eyes lifted
Above trampled, bloodied ground
Toward Heavens
Skies abound, surround
And we tread on

Looking inward
Knowing
We are going
Home

Thank you, Grace!

Journeying

Journeying

Journeying
you ponder
purpose – meaning – end
Disregarding
the moment that is now.

Proceeding
you contemplate
achievements – facades – friends
Forgetting
“now” is/could be acme, crown.

Living
you lose track
of your brilliance – wonder – zest
Heedless
of inherent
perfection.

Try,
please,
to pay attention.

The Spectrum

The Spectrum

Original Photograph by Kim Nelson

Months passed, work created no one else need see
That work allowed for progress
Through darkness
Personal journey
That work: No other’s
~ No other would want it to be

Now, here, looking forward
Into bright light, full spectrum see
Colors. Glory. Ever-present-never-gone
Understand, know/see fully
What is mine
What is not.
Lucky.
