The small church sanctuary was empty. 
Well, not really, that is never exactly true. 
There are always angels, 
playing in the rafters, 
tiptoeing across the piano keys, 
or chasing each other, 
back and forth among the flowers.

Sometimes they go...Read More

A Glass of Wine

In a box, 
a cake is hidden. 
I opened it slowly, 
and looked inside. 
All I found…
was a bag, 
and dust. 

Add this, mix that, 
be hopeful and hurry. 
The mistake, 
was in the flurry. 

Whipped topping,

When the wind blows, 
down from the great north, 
it brings a mighty frost. 
Do not be afraid. 
Just because something, 
makes you tremble, 
does not give it the right…
to win.

Cold is not my friend. 
It loves me,

a mutual affair. 
Slowly, artfully, cruelly,

They are soar in the afternoon.

The world is calling out,

Undetermined,

City Weekend
While his sister hosts a party,
(Only females may attend)
We'll be entertaining Henry
And the fun will never end.

What we plan is a museum 
(Getting there by train and bus)
And a play date with a neighbor,
Who lives down the hall from us.

Paper,

yellow and gold together, with bells.

At the store, 
there was a sea of people. 
Not one or two or a thousand,

On a parched land

Softly my love, 
I watch every flake,
come slowly from no where, 
outside my vision, 
beyond the window boundaries,
magical…even whimsical…
the white soft “above”, 
to the hard ground here below. 
soon a giant blanket of pure…beauty.

The glory of yesterday, 
taken down and destroyed. 
Pummeled into dust,

meant anything. 
They replaced our heroes
with shadows, 
and demanded,
