Daddy rocked his chair
Counted blessings with the creaks
Life    so unbalanced
God called him home    His blessing
My blessings drowned by my tears

first fall snow
what i’ve dreaded
all summer
august   september   and october
just flew right by

mid november snow
thanksgiving just three days away
christmas just a month
to hell with coffee
a shot of wild turkey

dear old mother
times are tough
no thanksgiving turkey
“go kill the chicken!”
she said with forced smile

thanksgiving dinner
so much to eat
i’m almost sick
but company wants a violin solo
deep burple

thanksgiving ham
no wings
no wishbone
I’m pissed
make drumsticks from knife and fork

A Walk With You

A walk in the woods...
The sun shines through the tree leaves...
My time with You, Lord...
Under trees, orange and yellow...
With the fresh cool breeze of fall...

Thanksgiving ---Sad

Since February
When doctors removed his legs
He has not been home.
Coming home for Thanksgiving
Phone rings-- "Stan died in his sleep".

our latest argument
to eat in or out
the blue-shrouded mountains 
hold the sunset so easily

Tanka Very Much

     Tanka Very Much

Thirst dries the desert

Drinking fills the passion depths

Girl trembles with cup

Water flows up from deep wells

More than thanks are on the lips

spirit’s star blazes
angels slough caste to chorus
tongues of shepherds freeze
pride-twisted scripture withers
born clean is the King of Souls
