A Love Letter
A Word
Went on a Caribbean Cruise
I was
Ode to a Naked Mannequin
The Nightmare
There's an empty space
When the tyranny
Sitting on a limb
The words are becoming
Left California
The Search
Another Thought
A Short Story
The swirling simplicity
I'm a separate
The black hole
I've given up
The New
The Winds of Crete
A Song
A Message
A Question?
• An Answer
And suddenly



An Answer

But a taste of wonderment
                          is addicting in deed
And like planting a fulsome, free spirited
It must out, no matter what,
If not here — then in another spot,
To burgeon — to bloom — to burst
                          with living
It’s much too exciting to wallow
                          in grieving.
So I’ll seek my own way to make it
And with my knowing, enigmatic
I’m sure I’ll find that other spot
Why say “no”, when I can say,
                          “Why Not?”
