Sacred Love Poems

Selected poems on the deepest experience of Love, 

reflected in Nature, in the Other 

and in the longed for unknowable.


... this is what we live for

            discovering the timeless

                       in the moment

            infinity 

                       in the familiar

            love

                       within the seemingly

                                                  unloved

Sacred Nature Poems

70 poems on the ever present stillness 

when the quiet path of appreciation

encounters the timeless soul of Nature.


I know the way the birds sleep

            folded  quiet  alone

     yet there is a song they keep

     for the morning light

     and wings and eyes

     very like our own

          that wait

          like we wait

          for every sign of beauty 

                   to sink in

The many eyes of beauty wait

for the song of silence

to begin. . .
