Twilight crest after

midnight storm gives way to verdant

grass, and hope appears …

Haiku


Morning sun rises

My soul’s shade is lightened now

No rain weigh it down .

Unaware


we will both grow old,
our youth wasted in time

rusted planks of life
jutting out

feeling the days gone past
looking for a sign

we will understand how
little time we tout

until now, we look and see
our hands and body weathered

I will smile and feel the
glow of our youth

even though the shifts
are tethered

Awake


A day of celebration:

“Now I a two-fold vision see…
May God us keep
From single vision, and Newton’s sleep.”— William Blake

Time


Over a hundred

years this building has survived,

the moon more; I am the visitor …

Haiku


Super Moon spills sparkles

Into the still water below

The Magic begins…

Haiku


A silent morning

Reflection of just being

Feeling the before

Moment of many,

a hope of time.

A minute of peace,

beauty in rhyme.

A summer’s dream

Just Below the Surface


Just below the surface

laughter is a gift

a day of sunshine

a friend shared

a sister cared

I quietly rise

and in my chair

I think of things

and say my prayers

the flickering light

the quietness of morn

has washed over me

from others scorn

I look past time

and sense a grace

it is not  mine

but, just below the surface

a tear wells up

I take a deep breath

look toward the flicker,

and pick up my coffee cup
