A Brief Story

I remember a day when I wish I had tied my panties in a knot. Out of a whole drawer of undies, I had picked the oldest pair; those with elastic that held onto its stretch by a string.

One Bright Star

I sit here tonight and watch the star that I have "found" in the heavens. Memories collide and I am reminded of a sweaty little palm that held tightly onto my hand, a palm that, too quickly, slipped from my grasp.



Encounter With a Shadow

shadow of youth

A poetic reflection on time and shadow.

As the sun shone bright behind me
The girl that I had been
Appeared in slender shadow
As I walked westward home.
