A Word
Went on a Caribbean Cruise

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

 

 

 

I was

I
was born
a small girl
who
learned to talk
and walk

I
experienced
happiness, sadness, joy and fear
I
laughed
and
I
cried
and
I grew into what I am . . . . .

A woman
full of love
for Man
and
I
am capable
of
patience and anger
confidence and guilt
and
love . . . . .

I wonder as I grow.
The end of life I know . . . . .

                        But what will happen
                        From now till then?
                        Which direction will be taken?
                        Which new senses shall I awaken?

                        All that has happened before
                        and the anticipation of so much more

                        Every year, every month, every minute 
                        The variations of life are infinite.
