Each Day

Life invites us to

its grand sing-a-long even

if we can’t carry a tune.


A Novel Proposal

May we blend rhyme with

reason and have compassion

this harsh election season.






Heart Swell

The katuata

below is enough to make

any mother proud.


If your garden fails

to flourish, you must amend

the soil, not the flowers.

Without taking one

step, she began a journey

to the center of her heart.
