Wendy needs your prayers

I heard from Wendy just a few moments ago.  She has fallen and cracked her knee cap. She is badly bruised and has a lateral crack on the kneecap. At first, they thought it would heal on its own provided the bones did not move and misalign. Now a week later, she saw the orthopedic surgeon again […]

A Sense of Relevance

Alone, no contact with another human being, no dictionary nor guide for punctuation, No word for flower or bloom, Come autumn, when the leaves turn red and golden, language would be loomed, a word woven to share a sense of relevance. We write our world with red of roses, periwinkle and lapis skies and seas, […]

Come to Verona, Poet

Come to Verona, Poet, Give up that window on darkness, the cage that barricades the senses. The clover has bloomed; the leaves are falling more brilliantly than ever before. Fall has become more bewitching every year. Come to Verona, Poet. to the stone unturned, to the song unsung. Liars and fools would rewrite greatness. They […]

I hear the gone sound of a thousand silver wings; fireflies, dragon flies, […]

A Kind of Hush

Overcast, subdued, the splendor of fall fills the air with a sense of hush. Where emeralds once hued the hills Maples are draped with new flame. Wild geese vee, merely ritual; now they winter here, comfortable with abundant corn and greens grown for their pleasure. Ancient instincts for migration are stilled like this world alight […]

Much Fuss About Nothing

  Contemplating flaming ice and how one should really hold their mouth to get a poem to be born right, I heard with great alarm a squeaking sound. First thing I thought, “my fan”. That fan always worries me because to pass a class I installed one in my new computer. It didn’t need one but […]
