Age is pain
migrating 'round
the body

faultless covering
giving promised cleansing
first snow
under my feet
the crunch of fallen leaves
restores lost years
The savory scent
of fallen leaves feeding
future seasons
star-filled sky
skin-bracing cold
God's greeting

Remembrance Day 2005

dark yet sweet
like chocolate

Man's Best Friend

warm, silent,
love without words--
gift of God

feeling cold
I wrap tightly
inside myself

beside me
you feel colder
I unwrap
a salad
of shadows and sun
prayer place
during the journey
I reach a place and see
dust, still on my feet

~Matthew 10:14

pillar of salt

along the path
of unyeilding terrain--
I look back

in my world
chilling mist seeps in
truth obscured

Middle Aged woman

Push! Breathe! Push!
Birthing two generations
is hard work.
crying out
on a moonlit evening,
I give birth.
You stumble
I want to be your crutch
I let you go

Prayer places

urban oasis
God and nature blending
call to prayer

Tiny beetle

in the morning

gentle greeting

For Mike on his 50th

spreading silver
after twenty-five years
still my love
