I’m Just Saying

The birds around my home are slower than norm
There is less urgency because of the love and abundance of riches here

Warm Rivulets Between Rills

You remind me of someone you were, how you do that
so perfectly effortless

Evoke the we that we were
cue the salty sea air

Everything about then is beach-washed
designs, that’s how I remember

How could it be otherwise, the
other times we would soar

Just a little
bit more

We remind us
of then

Join me. Inhale – long –
and hold it gently.

B Sharp

My best friend borrowed a guitar, I told her to return it
with a full tank of gas. She just shrugged and said Huh?

I was your sister, you were older, I listened,
I thought you knew things I might need to know
even though you often said so very little, and
in the end I want you to know I will miss you,
I am younger, oddly no wiser, I regret you not
having known me better, as I you.

Those Woods

The little horse has passed, still her harness bells summon
snowfalls shared, quiet leas, and the long dark nights of winter.

While watched pots might never boil
Those left alone inevitably burst into flames

The Curator

Life is a string of goodbyes
so longs for now
without interim hellos

I leave behind all who I’ve been
for the sake of who I become
with each parting embrace

Richer for the memory I mine
to uncover the nuggets
which fund my perspective

we’ll get together

Forgetfulness –
a life-shaping quality

Blessing For A Friend


I hope you love
the life you have,
in fact I even pray
that you have everything
you’d ever want, may you never want.

The Gypsy Way


My friends who are scarred
are indeed my distinguished colleagues.

Softer Parade

chagall backdrop

A shot in the arm
of hope and love

A pat on the back
of consolation
and soft asides

A kiss on the lips
of grace embellished
small, soft daubs
