Looking though their eyes,
To see their faces shining,
Is simply awesome.

A kiss on your cheek.

mother did not mind

mother did not mind
a kind beauty of passion
and then there was me

singer of night songs
tone deaf to all but to me
the randy cat howls

mated wife, mother
baker of red cherry pies
one in the oven

Migration of the Monarchs

drowsy cricket songs
call orange-black wings to rest
on yellow ragweed

hunting with broomsticks
bent coat hangers and cheesecloth
we chase summer dreams...
