Risky Business

Have you ever been

nose to nose with a lion?

Here’s to not tryin’!

“Control yourself and be careful! The devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat.” – 1 Peter 5:8 (ERV)

“Paint the trees with snow,”

said the gentle winter breeze.

fragile harmony

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!” – Psalm 133:1 (NIV)

“For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” – Psalm 122:8 (NIV)


Strong Enough to Bend

The limber willow

does not argue with the wind

and yet it survives.

Inspired by a conversation between Master Khan and his Disciple Cain, on the TV show Kung Fu.


Mirror, Mirror

Be true to yourself.

Even when it is broken,

you live from the heart.

You’re already doing, you’re always doing, what’s in your heart. You can’t get away from your heart.

A tiny space ship

and lots of alien tracks.

E.T., please come back!


Cliffs Above Tulum

On the craggy rocks

azure ocean foams the shore.

People under palms.
