The Authorship Of Morning

The air is cold, its sky a silver rink with crows skating on the wind   while others tramp along the garden searching for things to eat or interweave a nest.   The flock torn having descended earlier from a common tree   while a different species flies from my ribs carrying the hunger of […]

The Lorelei In Transition

  She’d opened her heart to the music of solitude,and it had come to her.    Sarah Porter   Near that part of her  house where the tree shades a window,  wild grass and rock harboring salamander or snail, she sits  humming her own mantra, a song recorded in the bones,   and notices how much younger, […]

Oh, Honey

Oh, Honey, it’s not the money, clothes, nor the car. It’s much, much more by far. Do you see how that sun does rise, that moon can mesmerize, how stars illuminate nighttime skies? You, like the sun, moon, and stars, are my heart’s light reflecting love’s warmest glow. Oh, Honey, you must know. Money? Clothes? […]

Greens

I’m dreaming of greens—ferns, lawns, leaves, sprigs, sprouts, shoots, seedlings—displays of  fresh starts. Oh, gorgeous greens. Winter, you’ve etched and sketched your display astonishingly.

After Shedding The Brace

…there are characters, both human and animal, whose assistance can be earned or spurned; and there is — over and over again — the journey or quest, which leads first to knowledge… Sarah Maitland   I found a piece of the forest in Walmart’s parking lot where the winter tree dangled its few   amber leaves — […]
