When Melancholy slipped in,

uninvited, unexpected,

yet not denied,

I asked,

"What do you want of me?"

"To be known, really deeply known"

was the reply.

And so we sat.

My elderly Whiskered Friend,

who senses such things,

curled up in my lap.

And so we sat.

A tear.

A purr.

A smile.

A m...

 In Your Absence

I miss you gently.

For that I am glad.

To feel any less

would leave me empty;

to feel any more,

would leave me sad.

You and I

You were the rock midstream

greeting my bubbling waters.

Though I could not stay with you,

with you I sang as I went by.

Letting Go

The win...

I am

a dusty traveler,

an explorer, I would say,

on a long,

evolving journey.

This is a special place,

this stop along the way.

How long I will be here

I cannot say.

I bring to you

the best

of who I have become.

You give to me

the best

of who you are.

When I move along,

I shall not l...

When I was young, the clouds beckoned

with illusive shapes.

There were towering castles and hidden lands

of giants with capes.

There were sweeping ships to ride and friendly beasts

to chase.

Great, billowing pillows offered places in which to hide.

My innocent child’s mind cr...

Quiet pool,

though gently lands the swan,

your reflections are broken.

Yet you comfort me,

for not only do you mend,

but add the image of the swan as well.

                 I came here to rest

                 gentle breeze.

                 My strings are taut....

I planted them with visions

of petaled blossoms dancing

in the dawn breeze.

Little brown rabbits found them delectable.

So I leave them,

blossoms gone, leaves chewed,

stubs in the newly turned earth.

A reminder

that I am not alone!

Laughter explodes from within me

as I stand in the high wet splashes

of the happy wave

that hugged the rocks too hard!

The water breaks

into a thousand glittering bits

pelting hard and cold

upon my skin.

Falling away

it bubbles and sings,

blending and rebuilding,

to crescendo for...

Travel lightly

and you will journey endlessly

yet never tire.

Sleep with compassion

and you will never sleep alone

or wake in pain.

Ride the storm with faith

and it will bring you

to the quiet side.

Cast your soul to the wind

to find its true way

and it will come back to you

When I die,

do not grieve for me,

for I shall be dancing

with the wind

on the crest of the sea,

glittering in the starlight,

shimmering on the sands.

Do not grieve for me,

for I shall be

in the embrace

of All there is to Be.

If tears flow,

and your heart aches,

so let it be.
