"Winter Scene" By Currier & Ives At “Winter Scene”
By Currier & Ives

You can keep your equator and tropics.
I prefer the more subarctic latitudes.
When it comes to the weatherly topics,
I am partial to cool-headed attitudes.

Heat weakens my brain’s constitution.
It saps my cognition and reason.
If I had but one resolution
I’d name winter permanent season.

a season saved for mary ~


professing love for me_edited

what of words
one blessing fails –
a choir can hardly sing
to tell of grace
in all I’ve known –
a loving solstice

as voices blend
in whispering –
the ransom of my will
to a season saved for mary
candles reaching –
higher still

red and virgin
blossoms bleed
beneath an old and crooked tree
verses of ten thousand psalms
– professing love
for me

I wonder
though not so often
how sweetly the path was grown
another way
from all I dreamed –
returns my soul
to home

when you came for me ~



where was I
when shadows crossed
into the darkest night
whispers held
of one more faraway
a name that knew
no sweeter tongue
than memories to taste

eyes denied
the light of
one more

where was I
when you came for me
a snowflake on a breath
of spring
a paler blue
of robin’s egg
held the blossom tender near
as a bud beneath
the sun drenched sky
a wish against
the wing

Poem: Expanding Our Circle

Come read Mark’s – Expanding Our Circle!

Crow On The Wire

Celebrating the noble
is shortsighted.
Honoring the privileged
may do us more harm than not.
The spiritually enlightened
perhaps are phantoms
who are not worthy
of our reverence or trust.

Loving our family, friends, and culture
is not a bad idea.
But isn’t there beauty in everyone.
Shouldn’t we give our hearts
to people who are hungry
and venture outside our inner circle.

There is a richness
in the lives of the neglected.
for those who are outcast.
The disenfranchised
need a helping hand, too.
Not just the righteous and the good.
