Today’s Prompt response to the prompt of Earth Day
In the silver tones of crystals streaming
In the energies from the silent quartz
In the release of sludge from throat chakras
In the comforts from citrine in my gutt
Resting in the moment of releases
I realize there is nothing quiet
About finding peace within any souls
Good Morning and Happy Friday! For many of the folks, this means Phase 1 or 2 of the pandemic rules.

Violets of the Sea
As the world is changing
vast bodies of water flow and engage
both to the shores and to the depths
lapping below the surface dolphins swim
Would there be a flow of blue chargers
lazing while the far away stingrays glide
diving inward outward to the flow or tidal waves
landing where the souls incline to cry
Red oh red the sea is raging
sending foam of sediment and carcasses
when the sting of operations takes hold
running dare appendages be found
Landing on the banks with safety found
sand within without these crevices
itching and dare not to stand without the call
as the venture into the seas calls me in
Tushes find a place in rushing waters
once again the sea calls out come in
violets come forth from labored creatures
sea gardens of life will rise again
