An Evening With Carol Burnett

As laughter filled our

throats and shook our bellies, we

met on the solid

ground of connection and checked

our differences at the door.

Summer’s Gifts

The shift to summer

comes with many gifts. School’s out

and the rising heat

will give everyone something

different to complain about.

Advice To Self

In a world filled with

chatter, seek a quiet place

for the soul to speak.

Don’t be quick to answer. Just

open your heart; listen deep.

In The Heat Of The Moment

I was so busy

complaining about the slow 

moving traffic, I

forgot to offer thanks for

 my air-conditioned car.

Full Strawberry Moon

Full strawberry moon –

best time to harvest wild

strawberries and dream

wild dreams. With mindful care

such moon-lit dreams bear sweet fruit.

His Way

That squirrel didn’t mind

going out on a limb to

get where he wanted

to go even though watchful

crows scolded him all the way.

Moving On

Graduation day

dawns bright with promise as they

begin their long walk,

each following their unique

path, into a complex world.
