More Than Enough

Just as too much light

on rain-soaked roads can make it

 hard to see, too much

thought can divert heart’s  mission

as we walk grief’s sodden path.

A Cup Of Contentment

Cloud of frothed milk atop morning coffee –

simple pleasure –

I’m off to

a good

start.

Blessed Detour

Circumstances forced

her to take an unchosen

path where she found what

she wasn’t looking for and

discovered it was herself.

High Aspirations

May we become

that to which we aspire –

one nation, under God,

indivisible, 

with liberty and justice for all.

A Cricket Speaks

A tiny cricket

came calling today, perhaps

to complain about

the changing weather, maybe

to ask us to do better.
