morning promises

Orion Belt hangs above

Pathway hangs over

Little Red Hydrant


Running I pass a

Little red hydrant all painted new.

I think to myself, how many you save,

so important are you !

Secret Places


Silence


A blade of grass moves

In silence from the gentle breeze

Solemnity found among the verdant green

As cool spring rain falls on the day to remember .

Birthday


A candle on her favorite food

Lit on this her 10th year passing

I sit and wonder in the quiet moment

No birthday song to wish a lasting

Wishes for the future gone

As the days have passed quickly

And you are not here to belong

At this table of celebration

Yet it is for you and only you

Leaving loved ones with their own

deliberation.

Birthday Stack


Birthday Stack

The stack went high
So high in the sky
The candles glowed
And went on and on
The special way
I started my day
With Mom and Dad
And siblings too
The glitter and gleam
Reflected in me
As the dreams for the day
Go as far as I can see.

Embers


A Day to remember

In winter’s dark embers

With the cold at your feet.

A saint in the past

Made sure love would last

So now we give roses and sweets.

Barrenness season

Frigid reminder of loss

Temporarily …
