Faith is conceptual belief
and like heaven itself 
it needs no proof
as it transcends time, place,
history, culture and space.
Yet, as faithful as we may be,
we are not of heaven
but are beings of the earth—
Unable to divorce ourselves
from the experiences of time,...Read More

My Heart is a Mountain

It's the end of our beautiful dream
The thrill is gone, for that reason...
I'm through loving you.

The nightingale that sings in my heart
for you has flown away, therefore...
 I'm through loving you.

The house I wrote this poem in

then a zoo for the innocently maladjusted,
then a garden for dreaming cats,
then floor-space - just floor space
to walk back and forth on.

I awake,  inhaling life like a toddler encountering her first flower.

SANTAS BIG MISTAKE
Twas the night
Before Christmas and 
As Santa tries to
Go down a chimney
The fireplace was lit
And his pants caught fire
So, he hurries and 
Crawls back-up the chimney
Looking like a 
Ball of fire as he
Jumps into the snow
Trying to put the fire...Read More
