On the Wing of the Breath [a poem]

By Cynthia Cady Stanton | Featured Contributor


Create some wind.
No matter what swirls around you,
add some air to it.
Whether it is a sigh 
or a deep gulp,
get it going.

Don’t get caught in the holding of your inner breezes.
This only creates pain
Life is born in and through us
and it is only on the wing of our precious breath
that we can unfold and float
among the mountains and valleys.

with the kind of hope needed
to float joyfully into the day.
I start with a smile

In the right light,
my elderly cat appears like a
kitten resting after deep play.
As the rays of sunshine he bathes in
shimmer across his gray coat,
they seem to hide how frail
he really is.

A Small Voice from Within [a poem]

By Steven Michael Krystal | Featured Contributor


I have a friend, so do you, 
We share laughs and smiles all day through, 
For all of my life, telling me what to do, 
A small voice from within, tried and true. 

When we are kids, fun and play, 
Days of bliss, all is okay, 
As we grow up, things don’t go our way, 
Life turns amiss, a steep price to pay.
