Cracks and Rough Edges


Cracks and Rough Edges

Only the stubbornly unaware
can retain the illusion
that a whole
and complete life
can be smooth and without
cracks and rough edges.

When the search
for wholeness finds
its way to a humble
faith and compassion
for all that is,
powerful healing
forces are released.

My new book of original inspirational verses, From the Water’s Edge, is now available and can be ordered from and

Your Sacred Story

Live your sacred story
with reverence and awe
letting it unfold in time
beneath the patient sun
whose light falls on both
our joys and sorrows alike
in the ongoing revelation
of a universal birthing
into wholeness and love.
