Apple Tree Tale

A lthough he wasn’t Johnny Appleseed
He climbed an apple tree for me.
A slip of foot, tossed him to sky
And we both found he could not fly



Telling the Tale of Sound

Can the tale of sound be told?
Seen and felt instead of heard?
If it’s possible to do,

You Are the Life of My Love

Senior Couple

I am not the love of your life.
And neither are you, mine.
Illusion is an outcast we both leave behind.
Now we dare embrace the reality we find.
Holding you close is, for me, just enough
Because you are the life of my love.

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.
