Heart's Insistence

"...Maybe the desire to make something beautiful is the piece of God that is inside each of us."           

~Mary Oliver


There is no longer choice

to do but not say,

As the wolf howls at the moon his calls of survival,

the still of dark responds to the haunting beauty of his instinct

and nature sings her chorus of God's perfection.


Too, my heart insists I pour out

my beautiful ache to the world,

for when soul finally understands that love is the air we breathe

and the color of all survival,

spirit is called to spread her wings of healing

that humanity might be transformed for eternity.
