A Word
Went on a Caribbean Cruise
I was
Ode to a Naked Mannequin
The Nightmare
Suicide
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
We
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
                          seed,
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
                          worthwhile
And with my knowing, enigmatic
                          smile,
I’m sure I’ll find that other spot
Why say “no”, when I can say,
                          “Why Not?”
