Willow heart

A frog weeps at night
noisier than rustling leaves
The wavering heart
follows wherever the wind
blows as one frog weeps along

You are the Dead Sea

You are the Dead Sea
You just take and take and take
Never giving back
Concentrated...with your needs
Buoyancy made of your pride

The one who enters 
Cannot dive into your depths
Cannot open eyes 
To see what resides inside
To me, you are the Dead Sea

I flow with my love
I just give and give and give
I am parched and dry
Immersion is what I need
You will never be a stream

THE TRUEST BOND OF FRIENDSHIP

Roses have different 
colors that entice and please;
a yellow rose stands out...
symbolizing the truest bond
of friendship one ever finds.


This yellow rose grew
in warm light and steady rain;
doesn't my joy also grow
being touched by friends who show
their kindness through profound love?

on the radio

on the radio; 
are songs,     my love, not words 
to bridge     this rift
you are     exorcising 
memories     of love, but why?

Music to my Ears

sweetness in your voice
all the lovely words you speak
music to my ears
         i feel all my sorrows fade
            warm sunlight encompasses

till the scarfs

till the scarfs
worn out woven by
my mom
I purchase one in
her favorite
color, can't get
