dandelion seeds
dandelion seeds
cling together, floating
in the breeze~
under the lamp stand,
a phone book full of strangers

butterflies
Tossing my jacket to the back seat. Unable to hide the smile as I walk to the door. The first morning without stiff joints since early autumn. My pulse speeds as I think about what's ahead. Warmth.... finally.

bells heard
As the sun rises the eyelids sink. A night that never seemed to end is finally leaving. Why is that? The way that minds seem to stretch beyond reality, resting in a secret place, well aware of the busy day ahead. The clock forgotten, the sun is the only referee that ends the game. Life goes on....

or the length of my years,

while steady rain drops
rock me to sleep
