In the arms of a sister

Gentle hugs

Soft sang songs

Whispered small things of lovely

A beloved

Belongs.

Blink Of An Eye

In the blink of an eye

Life shifts gears

Age speeds by

To leave tears

On a cheek

As in one glancing streak

Years flash

Full

Of mystique.

Weathered Walls

The stories told

By weathered walls

Still standing tall

After the fall

So like the lives of residents

Of old

Untold

Still hold.

Weathered History

In the weathered rock

Old hands of time still tick away the measured strokes

Of chisels

Embedding prayers

And faith

Into the stone.

Aged but clear

The corner breathes centuries

Of memory and hope

Of light and lore

And much too much

War.

Undulating Resolve

When resolve wobbles,

When your heart

Worries at

Goals

And your fingers

Forget

Their own

Flow –

Recall how

Every wave

Oscillates

To and fro,

How

The ocean

Itself

Undulates

Onto each

Remote

Shore.
