movement of grace
waters of complacency
ripple from center

Monday, November 26, 2007


hard edges of life
tumbled about in current
smoothed by time's passing

six years you've been gone
memories flood through this month
nobody's child now

boarding pass in hand
release from ordinary
wings carry away
words swirling around
countenance of perplexion
in a foreign land

the face of kindness
in spite of the foreign sounds
on the heart remains

dare to take the path
find directions in your heart
adventure awaits

one deep breath

leafy autumn search
on the byways of my heart
red and gold treasures

Tuesday, November 13, 2007


where do i belong
traveling on a journey
yearning for your face
quiet firelight
surrounding my evening chill
autumn belonging
folded in embrace
the circle of what matters
sighing depth of soul
miles of distance
merely separating touch
home, where the heart is

just like november
to send the wind of changes
through the summer leaves

alley-way alone
in a city built for two
quietly i trudge


alone in a crowd
do you notice the center
where i may be found
faithful and patient
wait for the master's return
please don't be too long
loneliness of time
felt in desolate places
shrill cry of the crow
house still and quiet
today i am an island
at least until three

late harvest

clinging to the wall
in the still sunshine of time
hope is in the fruit

Friday, November 2, 2007

all souls

layered, time passage
rememberances this day
for all gone before

all saints

those who've gone before
life mimics in the season
leaves blanket the ground
