Advice from the Morrígan


is the spear point
of courage
it opens the way
to joy.


comes in waves,
meet it
as the shore
meets the sea.


This life
comes but once,
live with your
whole heart,
love fiercely.



North Wind


A rare north wind blows
from the heart of the boreal forest
down through the Alleghenies.
It brings a bouquet of tamarack,
fir, and pine over Lake Ontario,
carrying the dreams of beavers
snug in their winter home,
and the moon prayer song of a coyote
alone on a craggy shore.
