A gentle exposure

In the quietness
of evening
when the sun
sinks low,
I’m found
in the twilight
of a graceful glow.
the summer is over
there’s a chill
in the wind
An aura of calm
adorns my skin.
Elements of dusk
allow composure,
a fluency
of light
and a gentle exposure…

Posted in a remembrance

Bereaved Mother’s day…

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.”

Please don’t be sad for me,
today is bereaved Mother’s day,
and every single day I honor my son Stevie
with my life, for he is always with me….

If I were to tattoo myself
with each loss along the way,
I would be a magnificent
creation of art
and the beauty of souls
who have touched this skin
would be a remembrance
of the incredible depths of love
that penetrate deep into my heart
with gratitude
for lives once lived,
as each and every one
still enlivens my being
with the glory
of what is being revealed to us…

The light of Autumn…

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

In fields of love, I found my groove
when looking
and liking

In yellows, browns, and luscious greens,
I lingered mindfully
in moods serene,

and daisies danced in the wind,
the light of autumn
touched my skin…

worshipful presence was all around,
when my feet
kissed the ground…


Posted in Me in real life


Sometimes I feel unseen,
not like the sky,
more like the breeze…

Though some may pass me by,
and I know I’m kinda shy,
but the trees have memorized
my name,
when they stand in homage
I am unashamed…

And I feel like a beauty queen,
among the flowers
and the evergreens…

I’m an artist of lighter moods,
an introvert
with attitude…

In the company of foliage
I’m known,
fluent in color
I am overgrown…
