I am the sum of my parts

I am part of the sum

 enlarged heart

I am a speck of sand

I am as vast as the ocean

two open hands

I am too lost to find

I am in your eyes

small mind

I am all

I am nothing

humble soul

I am you







Though it was never to be

I still believe mine seemed

the better dream

for you, for me

Simple, but pure

where nothing was obscure

Full and whole

with peace, unity, bliss; the goals

And love, always at the core

no need for anything more

Yes, I protest

Mine, was the best





Sitting in this

dying tree

wondering; should

I just let

you be, like she

has done with me?

When she said she

had to go

was that the last

that I should

know?  Then, I get

a shiver, when

wintry skies dim

with snowfall

winding it’s way

down the glen

I feel the fall

This tree; once, so tall







You say “she’s tough”,  as though

not wearing a certain kind of skin

means you are somehow damaged

But someone, has to feel everything for the ones who don’t

These are the ones with the strongest shoulders

who always carry the heaviest things

and there is absolutely no shame

in displaying a big, tender heart


Here am I; I have arrived

In this moment I am alive

There is no next, or one before

I am the open door

I watch, I hear the falling rain

There is no pain; no need for gain

Who am I; I take my bow

I am; my name is Now



I now love a cat

I would even go to bat

if it came to that

for this sweet black cat

Never knew I would do that

but lives are like that

when they belong to a cat




Shuffle away night’s haunting dreams

shuffle twisted covers aside at seams

shuffle barefooted down the hall

shuffle cards for solitaire one and all

shuffle dishes into the sink

shuffle messes room to room, while you think

shuffle clothes to wash dirt away

shuffle round in circles, throughout the day

shuffle memories as darkness begins to fall

shuffle back to bed again down the hall

shuffle to find the place in that book

shuffle the lamp off after a last look

shuffle through thoughts, hiding in your head

shuffle all that is left unsaid

shuffle the breath out of your chest

shuffle body parts, until you’re at rest

shuffle your soul toward the lee, growing high

no more shuffling, just touch the sky
