on my tongue
I taste the bitter words--
potent medicine.

crouching tiger
hidden in the early morning fog
the fog lifts

early morning reality
in the foggy mirage
early morning
giving way to stifling day
the fog lifts

Ember Days

I feel the coolness
in the quiet harvest night
and offer thanks

pink and ubiquitous
the dry paint recoils from the walls
barely hanging on

loud summer thunder
the dog jumps up on my lap

collapsing star
focused; centered energy
paths converge
the small house
time for letting go--
yellow kitchen
through my brain
crystalline sounds drift...
your music

I hold the knitted shawl
the jeweled colors dance
in the bright and airy room
new hope

We beg her--get help!
Horrified, she circles the

in the cold
optimistic bird
singing loudly
