Reinventing Yourself   3 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.

Silver-bells & Birdsongs   2 comments

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

After
befriending the night,
stars at my feet

points the way, in groove

Blossoms of raindrops
after fresh rain of blossoms
maples in April

Calypso orchids
Facing the same sun
A pair of fairy slippers
Alone together

Draw close, peer through a wildly wee window, and the ordinary world drops away. Your one-eyed view through keyholes, knot-holes, and Easter egg peepholes is a one-way ticket to the other side, the shimmering one that almost makes you fall. Into. That’s how I feel when I step out from my bright, electric world onto a spring-green, low-lit trail with its tender vine maples and sword-pointed ferns. Take a look!
