there was just electricity between us
the magical night we met;
no music,
no wine–
just screens and keyboards–
but yet …

Birth Day

We are conceived in darkness.
Sperm meets egg and growth begins
in sweet mystey of Mother’s womb.
A place of warmth where new sensations,
sound and touch are realized.

Autumn Reverie

I. Looking out her window in the gray November,
She saw the squirrel in his leafless tree,
fretting, nattering constantly
She heard the goose's call resound
As rhythmic wings carried him through space.
Bringing him to a warmer place.

Crumpled Words

Her tears held the page in place
A torrent of emotion obscured its face,
In words smeared and blurred
Their meaning lost.
The page was
Torn,
Mangled,
Tossed
Into the space of memory.

For those without dogma it's still okay
To have a Merry Christmas on Christmas Day

are clipped
i fall thrashing and spinning.

Be Careful …

Be careful what you wish for
For it could soon be yours
And once you have it in your hand
You may not want it anymore.

How Fresh 'Tis After Morning Rain

How fresh ‘tis after morning rain!
Re-creation of new day.
The storm has passed and washed the stain
Of yesterday away.
