Cry me a flower

Is there growth
without grief ?

For what is gone,
for what is left
even Men cry
in the face of the sunset
while we wait for a new dawn

and wiser creatures
do not as they (we) please
but as they must,

flowers bloom
where tears watered the land.

Oh look, a coral symbiont !

The song of life

We sing the song of life

we sing with one voice
the sea the fish
the humans and the shells
the corals and the sand.

We sing with one voice
that there’s no life
apart –
there is no us and them.

Life runs deep in the water
as high in the sky
on this Earth in the dirt,
don’t cut yourself off.


we accept we are one
with the song of life.
