Today I Ran

today i ran the same 3 miles
today i ran vigilant for bears
today i ran grateful i could
today i ran under the Montana sun
today i ran downhill then up
today i ran and cared not about pace
today i ran past blooming wildflowers
today i ran pushing precious cargo
today i ran honoring each step
today i ran letting go of garbage
today i ran well
today i ran

Sea Home

Jewel-like, greenish-bluish, aqua –
– rolling colors –

The escaping tide
draws my breath with it

Lapping surf slurp-slurps
against the rocks
splashing drops of salty
wetness over the sea wall

And I drink in the sun
and my mind surfs the
swirling clouds as they
are blown by warm gentle winds

My primordial heart
beats in time
with cresting waves
and I close my eyes

I hear the sea call my name
reminding me we used to be one
and I sigh
peaceful at last – home.
