Love Song

Oriental, NC 105

Wind knocks at my door.

I turn and walk away as

if no one is home.

Our chests beat like drums.

Neither of us know the words,

but we play the tune.

Closing the Chasm

bridges and nature 044

Bridges cross divides,

 joining worlds once set apart,

making dreams come true.

Open hearts and hands

build bridges across the world;

help make dreams come true.



A friend has your back

when you stick your neck out for

the good of the world.

Heart’s Looking Glass



Each movement reflects

across the mirror of life.

May love guide your steps.

It is the sunshine

that entices the turtle

to rise from the muck.

From One Generation Of Men To Another

Father and son, cruising the manuals

Of cars and life. The older man rolls beneath

The car while his son hands him tools.

One man is approaching the hill,

The other descending.

Greasy handed, one passes parts

And the other wisdom.

They talk oil, filters, and women;

The nuts and bolts of living and loving.

The father knows it’s important to rev

The engine, go for a test drive.

He instructs the son to drive

Around the block a time or two.

One tosses granules on the oil

On the driveway and the other words

into the still afternoon air,

both absorb as intended.

Together, they wash away the grime

And sweat of the day’s work.

They share a beer and few more hours.

More is said within the pauses

And passing glances until

The younger man gets behind the wheel.

One thing the older man knows is

The ride is over way too soon.

The Story

Montebello March2011 057

One does not escape

the watchful eyes of vultures

waiting to devour.

They hover until

guard is down, chance arises.

And it’s all she wrote.

Failure To Claim

Settlers among the ruins
Of human sufferings
Looking for a place of refuge
From persecution and bitterness
That cut like a winter storm
Prosperity is never found
In the midst of void
Where one is afraid
To hope
To stretch
To live

Airing Out

Hermitage Gardens 025


The things we bar in,

beauty and all, will rust if

don’t let them breathe.

Beginning Of The End

snow in Montebello 052


Promises break like limbs in the wind

And fall as hard as snowflakes

Trust becomes tattered lace

Flowing like a frozen river

Between you and me
