Early Summer Delusion

tranquil . . . pool water
blue as vibrant sky above
spring’s summer vision

full sun . . . woody twigs
green leaf gone, infrequent bud
Ready to jump in

cool breeze, colder ground
sugarplum daydreams recede
Time to get to work

Moments of Time

In Appreciation of Balance

Loss overtakes each day, every night
but it doesn’t need to feel this way

Bask in melancholy if you must, or
if you like, but: wake well in the mornings.

Appreciate the sun, take purpose  in
its quintessence of balance—its shine.
