Hardly Famous

If I could be famous For just one day, I’d write you a novel Full of hope and love. I’d keep you close to my heart So you would be safe.


Bang the pipes Loose of the crud and muck.


Rain floods my eyes. Pain splinters my heart into dust. The soft glow of the candle, Illuminates my fear and self-doubt. This is not working. Throw it out! Time to try something new.


Somehow, I fell Off of the track. I tried to walk Down the middle Of a precarious Situation.


The flower that grows In the terra cotta pot By the garage door Had the audacity To bloom today.

Sunday Morning Ritual

The rock fountain Outside my sliding Glass bedroom door Creates a sense of peace And tranquillity In my weary stress Filled mind.
