Thanksgiving Prayer
We bow before Holy God in a Thanksgiving prayer.
In gratitude for grace gifts supplied year after year.
For clothing, food, lodging, family, and neighbors too,
In this assembly of holy silence, we worship You.

We bow before Holy God in a Thanksgiving entreat.

What Lives Dies
A little boy five years old,
was given a rabbit kitten to hold.
His daddy helped building a hutch.
The boy and the rabbit loved each other so much.

Now the little boy is six years old.
Runs inside with tears in each eye,

Icarus Falling
Daedalus in his heart wept
While far below plunged Icarus
A father's words unheeded
Both sun and sea corrupted
Wax melting,feathers heavy with spray
What a poor fisherman witnessed
Uncomprehending
Youth's folly to ignore a wise head.
The artificer flew on,joyful to have left his labyrinth
Broken to see...Read More

O Icarus, young Icarus flying so high,
As an eagle, in the sunny blue sky, rising.
Waxing strongly in his vigorous youth, so bold;
Fearless, he failed to hear his fine father’s sure truth.
Alas too late he learned his fate, clearly seen
As he...Read More

Ghosts in Yakima

Walking along a graveyard
Looking for my father’s grave
Seeing all the gravestones

I begin to sense the spirits
Of the restless dead
They linger around the graveyards

Waiting for visitors
Eager to talk to anyone 
Who cares to stop 

And chat
So lonely being a...Read More

Visiting Father’s Grave

Visiting my father’s grave
In Yakima
The ancestral land of the Aller clan 

Thinking about my father
And his legacy
And thinking that I am

So much I wanted to share
So much...Read More

Premium Member Sins of Our Fathers
In hindsight
I suspect my dad silently hoped,
secretly conceived,
vicariously needed his dream
I would become a multi-talented musician.

He said, No.
behind my mother's gentle apron
strings of soft-voiced disappointment,
but also hidden within unspoken fear
of Catholic influence
when I was invited to join
The Vienna Boy's Choir.

Seventy low-humidity degrees
An ever-slight breeze

He loved this screened-in porch
Fifty feet long by twelve feet wide
It’s a great day of solitude for the mind
Sausage and eggs breakfast by my side
