Gatekeepers – A Poem

We are the gatekeepers Never collectively asleep. When in one hemisphere Some in Autumn, Winter slumber; Others spring into action elsewhere Planting food and pruning flowers. When in one zone we sequester at dusk Others welcome the Sun to the day’s work. Gatekeepers and watchmen We are, Billions of lights each one shining From theContinue reading “Gatekeepers – A Poem”

Sleep eyed raindrops whisper to the snooze button again and again. Rest, the gracious interiorContinue reading “Thoughts from a raining day indoors – A Poem”
