near the waterfront

still silver statue
poised and waiting for my cash
immobile for now

guardian of the river
surveys the rushing water
waits for his buddies

recently tweeted...

let's strengthen the field 
maybe just one more monkey
is all it will take

straight lines become curves
shortcuts disappear for now 
construction begins 

softening ice cream
my warm hands on the carton 
soon it's edible 

muscles awakening 
who would think 2.5 miles
could cause such a fuss 

the fast continues 
30,000+ have joined 
anyone listening?  

hyacinths beckon
bring your face down here and sniff
fall into frangrance  

kitty looks nervous 
attention is pleasant but
please don't fence him in

a small ray of hope 
Bolivia breaks some ground 
by giving earth rights

can light be broken?

can light be broken?
when it falls upon tree trunks
illusions shatter

prismatic rays gleam
opportunities for hope
share the table

fragmented viewpoint
rainbow of new ideas
all because of light

it is well with my soul

new green bursting forth
from beneath last years dead leaves
small snow piles melting

grand river topped up
overflowing with new hope
it's well with my soul

she laughs at the snow

flurries in sunshine
carefully perched snow tumbles
off the high branches

icy gold sparkles
decorate faces and hats
she laughs at the snow
