From chocolate,

cinnamon and vanilla ~

grass tempts winter tastes.





Voices of complaint ~
agitate stillness
to a froth.

Closing the Cafe

Closing the Cafe


Like the spirited workers

they are

moving back and forth, in and out,

around the tables.


~it is late, almost

time to go~


A long day for young ones

attending school and their tasks


setting tables, serving, cleaning, and preparing.


I write, listen to the mummers

of the future,

dreams worked for coming true.


Like the good workers

they are

each one moving on,


while I linger slow,

writing on and on

thinking about them~

Small Stone 1.5.2012 ~ Holding


Today I slipped beneath the pulse

of blue ~ warm waters waiting

where I left them yesterday.


And so I swam and flipped into

interior memories of

each one who once accompanied

me, as we built two towers strong

enough to hold their golden

years ~ their lives lived longer still.


Today I am an older one

swimming in a pool others built

for my time of gold and  blue.
