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.

Benevolence

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.
