I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

These poems are works in progress and may be updated without notice. Nevertheless copyright applies to all writings here and all photos (which are either my own or used with permission). Thank you for your comments. I read and appreciate them all, and reply here to specific points that seem to need it — or as I have the leisure.

Safe Starting PLaces


The moon, still hidden 
in a thunderous sky,
is two percent of full,
beginning its waxing phase.

We also, this wild night,
hide behind our walls
and only in imagination
discern the coming Spring.

I phone my niece Ellie.
Six months in her rural home
she starts to settle in;
finds friends, community.

My daily quote 
from Divine Mother says,
‘Go into your heart. Access
your infinite Wholeness.’
