Early Winter (a haiku)

Relentless winter
blows across the East, making
its early arrival.

Moments (a tanka)

The most beautiful
moments are unexpected,
those instances that
bring forth a pleasant surprise
to an ordinary day.


Hope (a tanka)

Where the path will lead
is unsure as each day blends
into the next. I
hope for courage and strength as
I proceed to the next phase.

The Road

I take my time
with the next step,

Wondering how
I can make my

Next move, knowing
that the journey

Will take me to

Places, learning
from choices made.

Rest (a haiku)

Enjoying the day
after a peaceful weekend
reaching out to friends.

When Mom Appeared

The first time
I dreamed of you
was a year ago.

It was like
memories of
years' past,

Sharing and laughing
over the week's

You wanting to
know my thoughts,
me telling you
my stories.

It was a year
since I last heard
your voice,

A year since
I last saw
your presence,

And I wanted
that dream to
last forever.

Sacred Space

I center myself
in times of stress,

Reaching down
to that sweet peace

When thoughts are
in disarray.

I breathe in
to calm myself,

Holding onto
that sacred space

Which brings me
back to myself.

Speaking to You (a tanka)

I wish I could speak
to you during these stressful
times. You guide my way
throughout my days, yet your voice
always eased my worried soul.
