As the Wind Blows

Lonely long-standing Life-toughened trees Grow strongest When they bend and bow Their branches shaped Into forms set flowing By the forceful wind’s Unrelenting choreography, Trunk and branches Swaying and dancing More wildly and further The higher they grow Above roots … Continue reading

How High Can You Fly, Margaret Mair, Original Art How High Can You Fly, Margaret Mair, Original Art

How high can you fly?
On wings of dreams
That lift you
Into a sunlit sky,
Take you
Soaring through
Life’s swirling currents,
Suspend you
Hovering among
Sweet clouds of thought,
There,
In the clear light of
An airy world
Above
Us.
Those sea-colored wings
Unfurl,
Spread wide and
Carry you away,
Leaving those
Who cannot dream
Behind,
Below
You.

A Star to Follow, Margaret Mair, original art A Star to Follow, Margaret Mair, original art

In this wintry season
Days are short
And nights are long
And stars linger
Across the sky’s
Dark sweep,
Fragile as dreams,
Far away as wishes,
Fitful as memories,
Fantastic as gifts
Long hoped for
But never expected.
Our lifted eyes
Are captured
By their twinkling beauty
Reaching out to us
Across eons of time
And an infinity
Of space.
So many eyes,
So many wishes,
So many dreams
Held up toward them,
So much hope
In prayers raised
To the heavens
They call home,
Each and all
Bringing us together
Even if only
Up there
So very far away
From these places
We call home.

A Dream of Doves

Christmas card, Dove and Flower, M. Mair Dove and Flower, Margaret Mair, original art

A wish for this holiday season:

May you dream of doves,
Of a peace that rests
Gentle as a drift
Of pure white feathers
On your sleeping shoulders;
May your dream take wing,
A loving prayer
Weaving a net of kindness
Around a wounded world;
May you wake touched
By a vision
Of beauty and hope
That weaves itself
Through all your days;
May that vision blossom
Into a beautiful flower
That envelops all around you.

Wherever you are, whatever you celebrate, may you find joy and peace in your days.
