(A Prayer of Intercession--Brief Joy)

Upwards Into The Swirling Sea Of White.

Tuesday afternoon in the jewelry box

What If



Make (of) Me A Snow Angel

the slave is freed

So You Do (May 10, 2010 written for June 1987)

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

All Beings Considered

A Little Bit of Harlem in Your Life

Max on the max

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

A Man Called Tsuris

For The Loss Of A Ghost Like You

Love A Cat

Fragile Shell Of Morning

I Long For Stars

I Feel Fine(r)

The Crow Is A Songbird

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

And With Words I Let Them Go

When He Returns From The Road

Flashes, Glimpses, Moments, Time

the brand of disappointment

Boy Restored

Please Don't Bring Me Flowers

No Woman's Friend

Ramada

Sometimes I Hear Him

the life and times of Medusa

why not ask the cat?

Confetti Universe  



>>>>>>>>>>>>



for the love
of all that's simple
that is my creed
I don't have a need for
complication

birds
clouds and sky
keep me company
occupied
for hours

the simple patterns
no one sees
are the intricacies
which
are my bliss

God above
when I am lonely
I could live my life
always
like this

all living creatures
great and small
the comfort of a cat or dog
within my hands
the warmest touch or
gentle easy words
of a kind friendship
or of a wise woman or man

wild flowers in the breeze
tall and taller trees
the sun freckling my face
the sweet breath of a soft zephyr
the limitless stars to count on
and the moon above to let me in

the rushing on
and texture of running waters
flowing over me

how lucky to have
an active, curious mind to keep me good company

I wouldn't trade a day of this

this is the kiss
of my confetti universe

a ticker tape parade
in my bursting heart
for the love of all
that's simple

hallelujah
