Who knew that
The blue sky reflects
Like water?

Spun In An Instant

Spider web.
Perhaps it will catch
A glass fly.

Sun, sailboat
Are slipping away –
Life, as well.

…………………..( (for Flag Day, 2015)

Consider well the flag we raise and fly –
The colors sharp and clear, the stripes and stars cohere.
For it and freedom, many had to die.

It ripples in the wind against the sky
The popping that we hear seems guns that killed the dear.
Consider well the flag we raise and fly.

Some seamstress sowed the symbol that we buy.
But soldier, pioneer sowed blood that flowed a tear.
For flag and freedom, many had to die.

The ones who came before us – glorify.
Their hardship was severe; their wisdom without peer.
Consider well the flag we raise and fly.

Here and abroad was heard the battle cry –
The colors, front, not rear, the flag we now revere.
For it and freedom many, had to die.

Now o’er the greatest land, we hoist it high.
In foes, it fosters fear; from friends it brings a cheer.
Consider well the flag we raise and fly;
For it and freedom, many had to die.

It Grew Up Up Up

A boy lost
A kite with a tail.
Became cloud.
