Missing Him

December 24, 2007

Let’s work backwards:

 

First, I will miss him just sitting in his chair

content to smile as if he had no needs  –

connected by spirit, happy to be.

 

I will miss the shuffle of his brave feet

planting the walker ahead like an ice axe;

climbing mountains we could not see.

 

I will miss him presiding above the fondue

a sorcerer stirring by candle light,

conjuring batches of yuletide glee.

 

I will miss him saying grace at the helm

from which he would love, work, and lead

a life of no regret,  a life of family.

the gases
the stone
the life forms
the consciousness

we must build
on what has become,
not destroy it

A Mom Like You

May 13, 2006

The world needs
more moms
like you.

A mother to speak softly
about how special
a child is.

A mom to look up to
and feel sure about.

I wish I could send you
to those
who need a mom
like you;
to embrace them
in fragrant warmth
while you sing away
the loneliness.
