Rescue Trucks
The flashing lights alerted us
That something was awry,
With rescue trucks preventing
Any traffic getting by.

Adjacent to the river, there were
Police upon the scene
And rubberneckers focusing
On something not routine.

But blocked by all the crews,
I googled the location but
There wasn’t any...Read More

Bi-balls are jewels carrying family pride,
though vital to survival they hang outside,

Dew Drops from Heaven
Partial transcendence though a small sliver of heaven on earth.
Condensed droplets of dew, 
Crystal gold, diamond refraction.
