On seeing a rainbow

On Friday, there was a beautiful rainbow over the valley. A double rainbow, there for a moment, just as we looked out. There are times when we need to see something that reminds us of hope and promises.


Standing, but not alone

In the woodsI stand,by a treewhosecompanionshiphas grown.I stand,yet,I am notalone. ~ I am part of a conversation later this week entitled ‘Is there any intent in nature?’ This poem expresses a little of my appreciation of nature.
