Only The Choice To Be

When People Go

The Day You Left (Words From A Half-Remembered Dream)

Wake Wake Wake

It Is In The Rain

Dream Goblins Of The Night

Wake And Remember

Unwelcomed Like So Much Unfinished Business

In March (Finally, Spring 2016)

All For Algernon

Weak In The Knees

The Finisher's Song

Nothing's Sadder Than A Rose

All Beings Considered

This Is It

Max on the max

I Long For Stars

Falling Leaf, Falling Man/Woman, Rising Star

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

Its About Waking In The Middle Of The Night And Having To Write It All Down

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

If I Could Be The Sky...

It Feels Better To Be Unfinished (Wish-Unspoken, But With My Eyes)

AWAKEN ode to Spring

contained within the sun you'll find

the makings of human smiles

see them everywhere gentle lines on the worn faces

of people

as they bask in a brilliant solar amber glow

every freckle is

a strawberry kiss

a blush of radiant energy

notice how shoulders seem to lift

corners of eyes seem to crinkle

and how arms swing back-forth merrily in time

like wee-willy happy goat-feet

Spring has its own lilting harmony

tempo and skip-to-the-heart beat

so fresh-new with each quivering breeze

sending a delighted shiver through

all the awakening trees and their budding leaves

and how all the young Robins do sing-sing-sing

an Hallelujah-of-Joy

which rises embracing

the fondant clouds of heaven.
