The Light of The World

Light
is not so much
what you directly see
as that by which
you see
everything else.

A Cozy Nook

Build yourself a cozy nook
where you can dream
more dreams
and create
more beauty
in our world.

Snow Day Puzzle Done


This one stirred up memories of Monopoly and Uno games with the grand kids.
I think we still have a tin Chinese Checkers game up in the attic somewhere.
If this cold weather continues I’m going to dig out those old games and see who’ll play with me.

Garbage Day In The Snow

Dropping branches,
cawing crow
only sounds
of morning snow.

Tracks to show
where he has been
through beauty
no one else has seen.

This early morning
walk about
as he takes the garbage out.

Icicles and Sorrow

There will be icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there will be sorrow

More Snow

Like late Christmas cards,
snow has arrived way past the time it was supposed to.
We’re in the middle of a snow bank
and the world has become smaller, quieter
and much more beautiful.

Life Is

Life is
as fleeting as an icicle
appearing solid, permanent, strong. . .
then gone.

Only memory
remains of
light
reflecting clarity,
firmly attached
beautiful
unique

now gone.
Only sad drops
remain.
