New Poems

Amidst reality’s kaleidoscopic might
My vision needs faith light
For color virtues-right
Admitting blurry sight…
To enjoy special child’s delight
Soaring with him in blissfulness-height.

Mom’s words cut like a knife, honed razor sharp
Which saddened my new wife
Mom now, after years of strife
Says I married up in life!

Yesterday's Memory
Walking barefoot

Holding tightly
   to your hand.
While you're
   looking up at me,
What a memory
   this will be.
Just a mother
   and her son,
Goofing off
   and having fun.

All My Children

and the sun shines pleasantly
upon the blousy flowers
of this backyard cemet'ry,
upon my children as they sleep.
Oh, there is Hank in the daisies now,
with a mound of earth for...Read More

To Conner, With Love
I know you don’t want to hear it
But one day you WILL 
look up and think, 
“Dammit Mom”
And then notice the rose-gold
Of a sunset

Just like I’m
Always taken by surprise 
At how your eyes
Can change from green 
to dusty gold then...Read More

Hush now…
He fixes bed…
Hums rest-filled lullaby…
My special child brings me to sleep*
He snores.

*Psalm 4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

The crow was always

"I think I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree."
Joyce Kilmer

But I agree with them, and always will:
Sympathy for trees I have understood,

When you first left me
I couldn't let you go

Until I saw the light.

Is a love without end
My dearest child
My hottest mess
You drive me wild
My source of stress

My mini me

Opposites attract
But the things you do
The way you act

I struggle too
So much the same
Me and...Read More
