To my son

There's a boy
Who whistles while he plays

And sings while he works

And fills my heart up with joy

And that boy is you!

To my wife

Whirling and spinning
Waist to waist

Hand in hand


A quick kiss

Faces full of smiles

As we dance together


To the music

Of our two hearts

Entwined with joy

Tangled

Moonlit
Bare winter trees

Cast long tangled shadows

On glistening snow

Sparkles of light
Caught
like stars
Fallen to earth
Frozen

Meditation Legs

Heat
One moment after

Numb

Taut

It's easy to write a pretty poem
A ditty poem, a poem for you to sing


It's harder to write a short poem

A taut poem, a poem empty of any thing

Looking out

Through the tangle of bare limbs
A crescent moon glows warmly

The morning star a cold bright twinkle


The still darkness

Three days tracks
Criss-cross the snow


Unmelting
