Misty Memories


powerful waves roll in -
misty memories

Singing the Blues


birdsong orchestrates
movements of the morning clouds -
singing the blues

Civil War Ghosts

civil war ghosts
in tree-lined battlefields
beauty above the bones

Visited Shiloh Mississippi, USA site of Civil War battles.

After watching their documentary film, it's easy to imagine the fighting.

But I was pleasantly surprised at the patches of spring daffodils in bloom.

Happiness Is ...

poetry books
fill the traveler's suitcase
happy trails

happiness found
as vacation begins or
homeward bound


kitty cat
gets hugs and kisses
as mom drives away

virtual hugs
around the world to
poetic Valentines

Hands Are Full

  petrichor   heavy in the air   fills our hands
