one day here

another day gone
how it is

sub zero morning
still the sun's rays melt the snow
powerful glitter

stay awake

comfortably warm
the cat dozes on the couch

purrs in contentment

where is the firefly?

having experiences

no doubt, while I sleep

dark is less scary

when shared with other small lights

wake and fly with me

hidden in plain sight

hidden in plain sight
soften your focus to see
camouflaged message

smuggling donkeys
a great job for the Mulla
they search but don't find

cats' wisdom beats mine
blending in where they want to
they find their way home

I stay home
not speaking about
the journey

unpacking boxes

unpacking boxes

a packet of love letters

memories revealed

once upon a time

refrigerator poems

took away the chill

children's arts & crafts

in various media

motherhood recalled

passport to my youth

did I really look like that

before age set in

fairy tales are sweet
but too much sugar rots teeth
then it's hard to chew

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

am I awake yet?
the old eternal question
keeps me on my toes

new snow

thrust and lift
new snow fills my drive
skis await
