Reaching for the Light


Reach
Seek

From the depths
The Shadows
 Reach
The sun's enriching rays.

Yearn

From dark despair
Seek the promised
Light
Know the warmth denied.


See
What was once hidden
In a sandstone crypt
Revealed
 Truth of life lived.

Celebrate

Achieving the impossible goal
Bask in the sun
Atop
The canyon walls.

  6. I will be traveling to Santa Fe this fall; NM is a magical place, one I enjoy periodically for an artistic and spiritual boost. I'm attending Upaya Zen Center & writing workshop with Natalie Goldberg. Would it be possible to visit your studio? I enjoy your work!
