A Mother's Tears
A mother’s tears are born of love
her baby, soft and new
and with each touch, her joy regales
her eyes, a misty blue

A mother’s tears reflect her pride
her boy has started school
he’s growing fast, he’ll finish soon
her eyes begin to pool

A mother’s...Read More

We stare into each other’s  eyes,
our amber-colored eyes, 
the ones with garden iris longings,
and revel in those memories we scripted one by one.
Crescent moonlit walks on sweeping mountain paths,  
Orange red clouds that fluttered over early morning hearts,
Ice...Read More

The hospital is a cold and sterile place. 
It is not meant to be…
warm or nice. 
It is meant to be a building…
set aside; 
to let life win and death, 
have no chance at all.

Today is the first day, 
The rest will all just follow,

There will be good times, 
bad times, 
out of work, 
of out of money, 
and even dreadful mistakes. 
The kind, 
that can...Read More

In the dog days of summer, with the hot sun overhead.

And would return refreshed and happier, we had...Read More

Ever wondered how it happens?
How the last person stays, 
How they make sure, everyone else gets out?

Ever wonder why?
Is that important? 
As long as we are safe, 
does it really matter who sacrificed;
or more specifically or…
even more importantly what...Read More

All shopping around
Don’t bring me down

Piling things up high
Making others wait   being a hoarder guy

With hand sanitizer by the box so far
Some may never need again to buy

but castle's no longer my own
and my kingdom's been overthrown!

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

I can hear birds. 
Not a couple, but many.
They are all around. 
They are happy.
They are busy.

The wind…
rustling through, the trees.
I can feel, 
the heartbeat…

No one to talk to except my dog and my cat;
Listening to the radio and watch television,
While I watch the excited cat chasing a rat.

The walls all around,

Although other news Covid’s somehow upstaged,
