Primary Aspiration

I want to meet each moment

as a friend.

 My presence is needed.

Pass And Fail

When I default to blame,

I fail to see

“de” fault may lie with me.



Sunday reflection . . . . I just helped him cry.

Would that we were all this wise.


There was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
“Nothing, I just helped him cry.”

Broken limbs, fallen

trees – lying in the midst of

Spring’s budding promise
