You told me that you loved me
but you lied
You told me you’d never leave me
But you lied
You said that we had time enough
To do what we wanted to do
I fell in love, believed you
But you l […]
As a young child in the mountains
The snow was falling at night
One night my father woke me up
To see a glorious sight.
A majestic, white snow owl
Was resting on the well
We watched it for awhile
Glancing at the city, busyness awaits
Reaching for some peacefulness, beyond the iron gates
Everyone is rushing, no time to smell the flowers
Entering a greenspace, where you can spend many hours
Nothing but […]
Your prickly outer cover
Is adorable to behold
You tiny little black nose
Wiggles with cheer untold.
Your tiny little body
Just makes me want to smile
If I had you near me
I’d go the extra mi […]
I grow old … I grow old …
Over the years I have grown bold
I have sought out new adventures
Tried many different sorts of food.
I have traveled many places
Whatever suits my mood.
In my youth I was very […]
The cool wind makes me shiver
The darkness envelopes me
The clouds make the shadows flicker
The night gets deeper.
I close my eyes
I smell the rain in the air […]
To the child who struggles:
When I see the smile light up your face
It makes my heart sing loud
When you accomplish a goal in your daily race
My hands start up clapping, proud.
A bite of […]
Have you ever seen anything quite as tough
As a field of off white dandelion fluff
Some people love it, use it for wishes
They huff and they blow
Until the wishes it dishes
Others are not quite as fond of […]
My life has been an odyssey
A balance of good and bad
I have seen so many things
Such adventures I have had.
Not too long ago, at my older age
I decided to return to school.
Everyone was so much younger
In the beginning
the world was dark
The stars began to shine so bright
Creatures started to roam around
Scampering, hopping throughout the night.
The trees they grew to reach the sky
Flowers began to […]
The land knows you, even when you are lost.
Ignorance of the land comes at much too high a cost.
When your feet leave the trodden path
Follow the signs, or face its wrath.
The wind blows with a slurry of […]
I made my way down to the stream
I wanted some time to loaf and dream
I settled myself upon the bank
Stared at the water, giving thanks.
A shadow suddenly darted nearby
The edge of the stream where I lie
The nature of hills
Burned up chrome
Aspiring to the high plains
Sun glare drowned in the surface
And black flows after rains.
In the small valleys
Evaporating levels of dry lakes […]
To Deanna, the Young Mom,
Chin up my dear, it’s tough I know
If anyone knows that it’s me.
To have a child who is always sick
Another with a disAbility.
Take the journey day by day
Learn all you can kno […]
