Summertime Rush

sunshine drives me forward

running into fresh made plans

a moment

a thought

stepping back a pace

to readjust

to recognize

not all things can be done

even when there is so much sun


Letting Go of Intensity

I am the fire

I am the raging sea

but really all I want

is to sit calmly drinking tea.


I am the warrior

I am the Goddess

but really all I need

is a life quiet and modest.


I am the poet

I am the muse

but really what I crave

is a way to solve problems presented in the news.


Calm your fears, open your ears, sing of love, strike a balance.
