It’s bad enough, that to another room,
I’ll walk with purpose and a steady stride,
And thought will flee like a reluctant groom
Into an unknown distant land and hide. 

But I’ve a fear that I will sometime think
Of what, to me, is the most perfect line,
And ere, on paper, it’s put down in ink,
Like vapor, it will vanish from my mind.

What A Difference A Day Makes!

We were all brown bears.
Then, it snowed.




Seeing The Sea

He’s waiting
To rise from the sand –




I Need A Note

What’s it for –
Finger reminder?
Remind me.
