Warmth

Warmth can be a cozy, comfy chair, Upon which thrown, a hand-knit afghan quilt, Awaiting little boys who tumble in, and there fake-wrestle for first dibs; no signs of guilt. A grandson hiding in the fort he built with tablecloths and sheets from grandma’s chest, And help from brother (older, wiser), skilled in art of […]

Tourist Twist

This photograph displays several counter-intuitive twists; from a vision of “La tour Eiffel” in winter, complete with ice skaters, to the miniaturization of the scene into a Christmas Ball.

Behind The Brick-red Barn

My tote-sac always stocked, prepared to fly, Escape to spur-of-moment quietude, Where out of sight (and out of mind, perchance), I gather wool, behind my brick-red barn.
