White Light Meditation


sleeping through the night 

delightful gift from the moon 

woke to finches' songs  



sun so bright  

it lightens closed eyelids 

white meditation

Sharing Cancer News - One Poem at a Time


sharing cancer news 

niece cried tears of worry  

virtual hug felt  



sister and brothers 

listened, offering advice  

family love felt  



bookclub gals express 

their support and empathy  

chicken soup coming 



surreal chapter this -  

writing of beating cancer 

one poem at a time

Look! Quick!


"Look! Quick!" he shouted!"

"The first violet of spring

-  grabbed the camera


birds nests, new buds 

blue skies all picture perfect 

spring is arriving  



the garden goddess  

survivor of all seasons 

quenches the birds' thirst 

Awake Again, Before the Sun


awake again,  

before the sun rises and 

the bird sings, mindful  

of how warm the spring air is 

slipping off my winter socks

The River of Time


the river of time  

never stops, always changes  

one hundred years pass 



On the occasion of what would have been my mother's 100th year birthday.

Hands Clapping


each raindrop, soft sound 

of hands clapping, dearest friends’ 




quietly the dawn 

sunlight breaks through the gray clouds 

birds sing their prayers

Night Thoughts Upside Down


night thoughts upside down 

as random and scattered as  

the stars in the sky  


at night cool crisp air 

reminds us of winter eves 

budtime comes slowly  

Hands Are Full

  petrichor   heavy in the air   fills our hands
