Concealed within each obstacle lay an opportunity.
Recognizing it often required some creative thinking.
I learned that the greatest knowledge I could attain,
was rooted in choices I made in everyday living.
I now realize that the...Read More

Two sets of footprints merge on the beach

	Earth wind fire and water

Chariots of passion as lips lubricate desire

	Body mind spirit and soul

An Eightfold Noble Path squared in heaven

	Love peace desire and lust

Drift wood applauds high and low waters

	Corals caress chorus...Read More

the oyster speaks up
A diner sits down
looking forward
to eating oysters

it was their season
after all

just as he was about
to pounce 
on the oysters

the head oyster spoke up
saying 

hey human what the hell
do you think you are doing

you think you have the right
to eat me?

Fly Free Nightingale
Locked within a golden cage
Kept under lock and key
Cloaked with a dark veil
To hide me from the world
Kept in the darkness
In this cold prison.

Under watchful eyes
Gazes cold as ice
As I remain silent
Frightened to move
One false step
Would be my doom.

Oh to be 21

Your 21st has finally come,

And now your journey has begun,

To say I’m proud is simply not enough,

Of the incredibly intelligent, independent,

Wonderful, wise women you’ve become,

My descendant, I’m just so chuffed,

Academically you’ve excelled at each and every hurdle,

Floating  Market on the River

Large sun umbrellas 
And boat roofs or hoods
And Asian conical hats
A bucket of cracked brown egg shells 

A grandma quickly whips up 
Egg, oyster and fresh, crisp bean sprout
In rice flour batter

October Moon Story
...and the pot of chili
simmered as the clouds
parted slightly settling 
upon the bright darkness
of the sky...

a table with a bowl
of oyster crackers
in front of a bowl
of life-like leaves
and well-crafted
assortment of fruit

near and distant sounds
float in and out windows
and a partially...Read More

Where age 24 Steve Jobs and I talked,
Well, him--as to the future--I was shocked,
The guy aimed high, humble, who want for naught.
