Wanderlust

In March, while on a SHU Booster Club trip to Indianapolis to support Seton Hall at Butler, we made side visit to the fantastic and historically significant Indianapolis Speedway. Not a racing fan, I was less than enthused, until we got there. The enormity of the track, the steeply banked turns, the historic bricks, did, […]

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 […]

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 […]

American Eagle

While visiting the beautiful city of Indianapolis last week for a basketball game between our beloved Seton Hall Pirates and Butler, we made an unexpected stop at the “9/11 Memorial”, that had been erected in the middle of the city. 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 […]

Full of Grace

A single flower beckons from the brambles, Serenely minuscule, near overlooked, But like a distant star against the night sky, She shines more brightly ‘gainst the brown-branched brook. Her simple, graceful petals, far from garish, Convey a purity, unmarred by man or passing wilde-beast who might have trampled, I wonder where she matters in God’s […]

Maple Resilience

Oh regal, beauteous maple, long you’ve stood, Bowing o’er my porch, through sun and storm, You share your shade until, in Fall, your leaves announce (in whispers) hints of coming frost. Your beauty tells a tale – but that’s not all, Your purpose spreads beyond your leaves of gold: You’re often borrowed, tapped for sweetening […]

Of Windows

When in the course of eons, man’s ascent, Desire for creature comforts came to be, Once mere survival safe could be achieved, As hay and clay walls opened for to see. Through ages ice and iron, improved upon, Increasing heights and breadths, invite light in, With gilded glass and solid sturdy frames, For nature’s vistas […]
