Summer Break Is Coming

So says the clock with each tick and each tock,
Ushering kids through their work
Pushing classes through the day,
A slow drip of sand adding sun to each ray
Closer and closer, the teachers all pray:
Summer break is coming – it’s just days away!

Sparkling Bright

See the single drop,
So pure and sparkling bright:
Essence of sunlight


Humming and pulsing
The heartbeat of the summer
Where wind cannot reach.

Mother’s Day

It’s sending a note on a busy week
Whether an email, a text, or a card.
It’s dropping by for a hug and a kiss
Especially when the drive seems too far.
It’s calling after the long drive home
Too keep her from worrying all night.
It’s time and thought and taking the time –
Make more than her Mother’s Day bright.

Ever Falling

Images fill the cyber sky,
Mad logics, worse than Wonderland,
Parting the real world with
Offensive slurs and storms:
Too many to count, and somehow
Even with so many resisting,
Nothing seems to change – all
Caught like a waterfall that is
Ever falling and ever held back.

A Night’s Living Dark

The weight of the sky
Rushes to the ground
In a soothing, smothering
White noise of sound.
It beats like a heartbeat.
It burns like a thought.
A sky filled with light
In a night’s living dark.
Entrancing, relaxing,
Frightening, compelling –
It calls to the soul
With each beat, with each flash:
A cavalcade of conflicts –
The calm and the crash.

Too Clinging

A cloud lingers low
But too close and too clinging:
Uninvited warmth
