Rose Colored Day

Tophat Cat

The chameleon crept to where he resides.
He hides in a crack in the wall,
The place his identity is unalibied
And his true colors are recalled.



Heaven

Heaven is the place …
Where the harp string never breaks in the middle of the concert;
Where clumsy fingers never strike the wrong chord;
Where we can walk barefoot and our feet never stumble, step on a thorn, or stub a toe;



Night Times

night sky

Nighttime feelings, fires, and terrors —
Sometimes it’s good to pause and write
Of feelings that wake you in the night



How Much Do You Love Me?

  • Read it as a poem.
  • Read it as a rhyme.
  • Read it as a song in 2/4 time.
  • Read it through until the end.
  • It’s just my way
  • To try explain
  • What’s going on with me again.

Encounter With a Shadow

shadow of youth

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



Ladies Don't

Lady

Last Words

Eagle stalking mouse

Purple-blue night into
Blue-white day,
On the glacier,
There he lay...



Favorite Child

My young son asked, “Momma, who do you love more? Me or Nicki?” I had to think. I knew the stock answer was, “I love you both the same,” but I didn’t. I loved some qualities about him that she didn’t have and she had some lovable qualities that I didn’t see in him.

Why Pro-life is NOT Pro Life

Unborn

A miscarriage left me with the understanding that abortion would never be a good choice for me. Even so, I believe the decision to end a pregnancy or carry it to term—yes or no—belongs solely to the woman it concerns and to nobody else.
