(A Prayer of Intercession--Brief Joy)

Love A Cat

Cuba Libre

Woman Of A Certain Age

Fragile Shell Of Morning



Disappear

A Little Bit of Harlem in Your Life

Sometimes I Hear Him

When He Returns From The Road

Not A Good-bye Day (For Our Ghuey)

July's Message

The Crow Is A Songbird

Counting The Long Days, Tilling The Greens

All Tarted Up

the brand of disappointment

Flashes, Glimpses, Moments, Time

Some Will

Coming Off Small

Please Don't Bring Me Flowers

No Woman's Friend

not the story of my youth

She Is My Friend

Every Time I Listen To the Wind.

If I Were Your Island....

I Am....( a keen observation )

Need You (note of encouragement to self)

I Travel Every Time I Think Of You

The Un-Promised Land

Poem Untitled, But, If Not For You

(You're) Still Here

As Sick As My Secrets

Mrs. Stine, Isn't It Time?

(A Prayer of Intercession--Brief Joy)


************

brief joy
temporary as
this morning's waning red sky
or fading dew

brief joy
impatient and hungry little bird
you flit away from my reaching grasp
from my vanishing view

brief joy
stay
keep me a friend longer
love me like
I need you

brief joy
acquaint me with your kind, sort of face
reassure me
tell me we have a time
a place

though brief
you are
joy,
all through time
how
I have needed you
