Reinventing Yourself   2 comments

Is it time to split your seams, step out of your skin
pump bold blood into fragile fresh wings?
This, the season of zest and song, could be your moment
for courageous pause, to unzip hard coats
that pinch your soul
and soar beyond thin rootbound worlds.

OSU pillars and walkway

 

Fragrance of rain-bruised azaleas on this side, a row of ripening elms beyond.

A petal drops, the hardy elms wave.  Do I hesitate & wait, it’s still not late, or

hasten through the unkept gate before my boots turn to stone

while I drowse in cozy comfort of what I think I know?

Where’s the gatekeeper? Who will be my ferryman?

Even when stuck on this cusp, I know, of course, they are me.

Silver-bells & Birdsongs   1 comment

Silver bells on the sidewalk

There were birdsongs hiding
There were seeds snowing
There were ants climbing
There were blossoms opening
There were poems drifting
There were memories growing
And we were there

Star flower on the forest floor
After
befriending the night,
stars at my feet

free-style fir needle
points the way, in groove

Japanese Maple in April

 

Blossoms of raindrops
after fresh rain of blossoms
maples in April
