January 6, 2021

In one day,

hope and despair,

acceptance and denial,

dignity and dishonor,

courage and cowardice,

inspiration and incitement,

order and anarchy

all on full display.

Knox Channels The Heavens

Knox said the heavens spoke

and warmly suggested

we head to the dog park.

When I demurred, he said

it was never a good idea

to argue with the heavens.

Reluctantly I agreed 

and off we went for him to play

until completely spent

which, indeed, was heaven sent.

Unannounced

Unexpectedly,

with no deliberation,

a belly-centered

peace visited me today.

I invited it to stay.

Full Moon Glistens

Full moon glistens

on ice covered pond –

night’s departing benediction.
