This Earthly Plane

This earthly plane on which we mere subside, Seems other worldly, wistfully serene, A plane between where sky and sea collide, Where humankind do live and dare to dream. Is earth a conjured backdrop for our schemes? We know it’s mere a sphere amid the vast of deep, dark space; yet more than it may […]

Village Nights

My “village” wears a shawl of winter snow, Yet folks return each year to take their place, And lighting from within the homes we know, Create an air of warmth and welcoming space. ”T was only hours ago they lay in crates, Securely stored to spend the warmer climes, Anticipating joy on grandson’s face that […]

Carry

After an exhaustively satisfying jaunt to Disney Springs, we return to our Polynesian Paradise, with visions of plunging into a refreshing Oasis Pool. This photo captures many emotions for me, transporting me back to the warmth of that day; tasty lunch on the deck of the Boathouse, our traditional “Downtown” shopping and snacking adventures, and […]

The Maze

She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, And yet she feared the secrets held within, She should have turned away, she should have flown. Aroma cedars bunched, full overgrown, Soft and nestling teased her to come in, She, tempted by the lure of the unknown, The sign was clear, the entrance etched in brown […]

Buttercups

In striving for fulfillment, seeking light, She almost overlooked the golden blonde, For brilliance oft confuses, blurring sight. Throughout her teenage years the buds so slight, Wee blossoms rose from lush and limpid ponds, She sought fulfillment, ever seeking light. Against the glistening of the leafy heights From dewy droplets clinging to her fronds, For brilliance […]

Suddenly and unexpectedly, the events of that morning more than fifteen years ago engulfed my consciousness. […]

Made for Each Other

Each year as Christmas time swoops swiftly in, With hectic shopping sprees at malls and such, Unlike my friends, I spare myself chagrin, And opt instead to add a personal touch. I raid my stash (I never have too much), To find the perfect fiber for his gift A cover warm with softness to the […]

Who Am I?

Mid jokes and jibes of thriving in the dark, Beneath peat moss and soggy, brown terrain, I rise near unperceived, yet here I be, Surviving rapid spinners, I remain. I’m often thought a nuisance causing dire consequences, if ingested by mistake, But you should know that I’m the harmless growth, And you may reap my harvest […]

Reflections

Sunlight streaming in remained unseen, Because my eyes were blinded by the light, Then wakened senses opened to the gleam. Day after day, I wandered past the scene, Oblivious to simple gifts in sight, Sunlight streaming in remained unseen. In search of inner peace and calm serene, I ran from daily strife and urge to […]

Split Decision

Balmy afternoon spawns thoughts of Spring, (though groundhog claims a few more wintry weeks) But during full-moon sleep, the world turned white, Erasing leaves of grass and leafy trees. My puppy licked his sno-cone from the sill, Carved prints betrayed my deer-hooved migrant guests, The feeders hung near top the blanket ground, And rocker sits […]
