When someone needs,

May you be there

May you be with.

When it is you who needs,

May someone be there for you

To be with.

Questions of Color

What will be

Of the day,

He so wanted

To say,

If you suddenly

Drain

All the color away?

Will the birds’ calls

Remain?

Will leaves still

With wind sway?

Will it be

As before

Or fade wholly

To gray?

Waiting For Sunrise

Silently

Night retraced

Steps across

Dawn’s new ledge

As the dark

Slowly braced

For light soon

To emerge.

Copious Fortune

Where gold leaf

Lends good fortune

And the crowds

Come to pray,

Shines the hum

Of the many

Wishing for plenty

Today.

Tunnel Vision

Ancient stones

Tell a story

Of feet treading from

Light

To dark,

And the tunnel

Foreboding

As history

Left

Its mark.

Staired Succession

Doors in corridors close

Even as others open

For the path no one sees

Goes around

Half again

In the climbing.

Grace’s Embrace

What grace allowed

Through ocean’s sigh

And earth’s old core

That plumed near by,

Embraces life

In all that die.

Evening comes.

Sun slides down

Child at play

Lapping light

Close at hand:

Summertime.

Life’s Elixir

In the cradle of life

Where all breathing

Begins

Rocks the ebb

Of all else

That we are

Deep within.
