O My Love –you were so daily real,
So beside me nights and days.
So beautiful the hold of ourselves;

So shadowed now by the sun’s rays,
So streamed now in swirls out to Continue reading →

The cold, brittle branches bare in the wind,

Waiting to bloom old limbs once more to love; Continue reading →
They’re out there…waiting!
Some sense it more than some.
But, no surprise with waiting done,
As someday the news reports “I died.”
Oh, head crowned with laurels spun,
But no quarried stone on lonely sod

I. Where, now, the sun Paradise, we implore? All peoples-nations stung by a virus And forced to stay away from each other, Till it somehow subsides and is controlled, And we return to our not the same world. A hurt-lame Continue reading →

Causing one to smile,
In the sudden captured
Rapture Continue reading →
