Sparkles of sunshine on the
dew moistened windows,
sprinkles of salt spray leaving
crystals on the
wind gusting like an energetic,
twisting my hair, pelting my skin
Walking the beach in the
mid-day sun, scuffing
in the sand,
scattered footprints are washed
away by the incoming
Waves erase the marks that have
marred the coast
smoothing the brow of the shore,
it is beauty
Divine will is in this place;
me and calms my heart,
troubles are left to fly on the
wind, or to drown
in the stormy sea.
Divine love is in this place and
with breezes smelling of salt
taking my troubles with a mighty

As I lie curled up in my bed
this evening, trying
to will the pain down into something my mind could handle, I kept
thinking of the warm feelings I felt while reading the list mails this
Concentrating on relaxing,
quickly because of the pain .. my mind began to wander and I soon found
myself in a world of soft fur, wet noses, and warm lickings from
hanging from jaws of great strength.
Maybe it was the pain coupled
with the pain medications,
but the journey I took in my mind was more restful to me than any time
since my surgery. My mind took me dream walking to a forest glen
of ancient trees, soft fir boughs, and a gentle brook meandering
stands of long flowing grasses.
Tucking pillows around my body
to support my back
and my legs to alleviate pain points, I began to imagine not inanimate
pillows, but live warm bodies covered in rich fur of silver, white,
and grays. The soft breeze that touched my cheeks from an overhead fan
became the close guarding pantings of sister wolves, keeping harm from
my side as I curled with my tail tucked under and my nose against the
hip of another wolf.
The warmth of the mid-day sun
falling across my
bed became hot points of healing light sent to me from miles away. The
healing light searched for not only the physical pains from the
but the mental pain from past events.
Maybe this pack of sister wolves
has been what
my mind has been seeking for solace from past wounds. The pain became
as I lost myself in these thoughts. I was able to relax and at last to
sleep untroubled by pain and content in the knowledge I was no longer
this mental battle alone.
The support of many sisters
would keep harm from
me as I healed.
Thank you my sisters...
