Some Will

What If

Please Don't Bring Me Flowers



No Woman's Friend

Sometimes I Hear Him

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

A Little Bit of Harlem in Your Life

I Long For Stars

Every Time I Listen To the Wind.

Some People

She Is My Friend

Beware The Sign of Sagittarius

Need You (note of encouragement to self)

why not ask the cat?

The Un-Promised Land

I Travel Every Time I Think Of You

Poem Untitled, But, If Not For You

If I Were Your Island....

(You're) Still Here

I Know Most Who I Am When You Are In The Room

From The Desert

As Sick As My Secrets

Then The Little Silver Fish Came

I Keep My Ray Bans Handy

Upwards Into The Swirling Sea Of White.

He's There

Oh, Now, The Pink Moon

And Even Stars Die

You Are Not My Audience, I Just Borrowed You For Awhile

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
