In his element,
He pauses for a moment:
And takes it all in.

Two Worlds Colliding

ONE five-minute break
at work playing games, mistake
exaggerated

butterfly dreams cease
cocoon gone in a heartbeat
catepillar weeps

The Poetess

.

                                        Writing her great pearls
                                        Worn with pride everyday
                                        But shown clasp broken

Focused, brows furrowed
Working, toiling, laboring
Then, my child awakes.

A Carpenters Hands

Splinters in his hands
The thorns of his profession
Wait to be removed

A dream comes to life
Under his hands it takes shape
Satisfaction reigns

He creates beauty
Wood yields to his artistry 
A carpenter’s hands…
