love vibrations

song of solomon
engraved on huge bronze discs
tell me love stories

golden vibrations
penetrate me completely
let me feel it all

I will pay full price
my attention is all yours
just to know the truth

(inspired by Jaume Plensa)

Nature decorates

(Diana Krall~ Autumn Leaves)

nature decorates
fallen leaves stain the sidewalk
tannins form patterns

reaching for my bones
I scrape the branches 'til bare
rainbows uncovered

look in the mirror
if the shadow is accurate
what does it reveal?

dead leaves on
one side of the plant
all fell off

buyers' market

a buyers' market
small house called my attention
come and look at me

burning bush
lit up the front yard
says welcome

red mourning

when the stories end
a beautiful irony

arches achingly

fields of gold

(sting & i muvrini~ fields of gold)

seventeen turkeys
avoid holiday dinner
stand beside the road

another flock has
gathered in the golden field
dark shapes far away

vanishing small self


vanishing small self
touch the space between each breath
navigate the curves

advice to myself


some thoughts for later
when the darkness pushes down

just come out to play

standing on the line
scan the choices and then pick
hope can defeat fear

What's going on?

the coin purse
of my attention
is leaking

get to the bottom
by digging a little more
carefully don't rush

I am wondering
is there really one question
to last my whole life?
