All In A Ray Of Sunshine

The kids outside are playing their version of fear factor,
lying down in lavender amid dozens of lazily fuzzy bees.

Je Dois Partir Maintenant

I am moving off the grid
no longer found
at the intersection
of any lat or long -itude
confined within no cell
there’s the writing
on the wall
you’ll see it once
you reassemble it
though it reads more
like graffiti

so sweetie I’m going

Miss You Much

chagall backdrop

My father dropped lines for a living,
distinguished foul from fair,
white chalk on the greenest of grass,
bounded baseball diamonds, tapered
to a fine point at home, tracing
divergent infinities, right and left field,
I’d join him Saturday mornings, in chilly spring
in early mist, before mid-day suns
would warm and laughter ring,
the pop of ball on leather mitts
rising above the hurrah, higher than towering
flies in golden sky that shine no more
except in the glimmer of my mind’s eye.
