School Days


The world is suffering

Covid has taken a toll

However do not tell

Our lil scholar

Trying to get on the honor roll.

Afternoon Tea


If ever there was a pleasure

that I would wish for thee.

It would be the solitude

of an afternoon tea.

I would bring the kettle

and a biscuit for you.

You would bring the tea

and we would begin to brew.

As we pour our cups

to the top of the brim.

We would take our ginger man

and laugh as it dips in.

Morning


Stretching so far

I try to see

the dark coal sky

hanging over me.

Constellations I recognize

spatter light in my eyes.

Laughing they drop

right before the horizon

turns crimson red.

I see the universe go on ahead.

Now


Missing the before,

realize it is my before.

I stop and dwell in time

no before and no after.

I am then in the presence

Of the universe.

Beneath it all


beneath the heaven

I see the windows of time

I’m always in awe…

Morning


I looked for the stars

I looked for the meteors

I saw sunrise ; smiled

Running


Monday


a rising sun

A another week has begun

Hope , prayer, and faith …

Storms


It is the storms that keep us

nourished.

When the sun returns ,

it is then we flourish.
