Gentle Giant

Hello Mom

I have come

To help with

The clothes.

Can you see

Just how gentle

I am being

With those?

I did not bite a hole

Heel or toe

In the socks.

Nothing like

What I’d done

To the new

Garden hose.

In Flight

In the slight pause between

Flapping up,

Flapping down,

Live the breath

And the lift

That propel

To carry on.

She Could Not Believe Her Eyes

She could not believe her eyes

As the path forked into surprise

And the end of trail became

Just step one into the game

Long the day stretched on ahead

Hours left for them to tread.

Did Aladdin forget you

On the shore

Of this lake,

Or did he just land

For a quick dip

To take?

Hold my hand

And we’ll go

Up the hill

As we sow

Seeds of light

For the thrill

Of just watching

You grow.

Loess Lull

As the clouds hurry on

And rare drops

Cease to pound,

Milky puddles remain

Atop pebbles half-drowned.

A liquid lull

Holds its breath

O’er wet loess ground.
