Watching the boats until comes the night.

The Logarithmic Death
The Logarithmic Death

I'm on a learning curve and learned today
a straight line means exponential growth, and
the steeper the line, the faster the death toll. 

You saw the number of death this morning?
The tiresome business is all over again.

Just for you
Easter Bunny I drew
Lovely multi-colored
Laughing faces, one after another
Yellow sun with orange rays

Blue, red and green stage
Every color of the spectrum seen
And my Easter cake gleams
Numerous colors around its edge graces
Sweet rainbow of Easter through the ages.

A Seder on Zoom
We’re having a Seder on Zoom
And Passover foods we'll consume.
We’ll eat as a group
Things like matzoh ball soup
But our seats won’t be in the same room.

We’ll read the Haggadah to tell
Of the story we all know so well –

Sue’s tears of joy fell like torrential rain,

Her only son had just returned from Spain,
she was overcome with sheer elation.
Homeward bound, they’re deep in conversation,
with his tales of Spain and his holiday ...

Mother's love

One day at a time

Trees full of blossoms

Hear the birds singing

Earth awakening

Rest time is almost over


Now love all

Air renewed

Time is passing

Use what you have

Rejoice you made it

Everlasting changes

The hospital is a cold and sterile place.

My voice is quiet. 
I have little to say. 
I am listening instead…

I can hear birds. 
Not a couple, but many.
