Jordan Lake, Haw River
 A brick wall sometimes a mirror may be
 if you as a child can see
 past the clay
 letting your imagination roam free

Standing out at the lake this morning,
 I found myself thinking about all the displaced people in Texas and Louisiana.
I became absorbed in the thought that all of us need a place that is a safe home.
Birds need safe homes too … such as this ancient grand hardwood standing tall on the shoreline.
My prayers and meditations are that the people, animals, birds, plants and trees in Texas and Louisiana recover soon.
