    WHAT'S UP ?

   IT'S ALL                       ABOUT LOVE

Buds of Magnolia
In Haiku

Velvet sheathes reveal
Coiled petals of pink and white.
Foretaste of beauty.

In a Certain Light


In a certain light
The world looks small to me
Anchored in the little things
Like folds along my sleeve
Or sun spots
On the floor
Where carpet weaves
Seem so much more.
At times it feels as if
The minor bits and pieces
Form the whole
Like pennies on the dresser
And old familiar songs
Or dusty relics on the shelf
Collected through the years
As if to say
It’s here I am
And there that I belong.
Such details as my eyes can see
Are endless pearls
Along a strand
That leads me out to greater things
Like winter nights
Where mountains sing
And I can stand in awe
To watch the night unfold.
And there it is,
Beyond the pale,
Our shadow on the moon
How big the world
How far the stars
And I alone
Am small.
