Surprised by Sunlight

Sunlight, on a whim,
Frames cracks in the limestone wall --
The yard work can wait.

From the laundry: visual small stones

As I sat in the laundry room, wishing I had time to take pictures and write poetry, I noticed colors, shapes and shadows a few feet away. Although I didn't have my "real" camera with me, I was able to capture some of these images with my cell phone camera. They have become "visual small stones" -- everyday images that shouldn't be taken for granted.

So, pay attention and see the possibilities! Inspiration is all around you, even in the laundry!

words long presumed dead --
ashes released from an urn --
the first verse ignites

The Book of Life

The Book of Life awaits my name;
No time to listen to that still, small voice.
I double check rules,
Craft fireproof plans,
Push you out of the way,
And race toward my calling,
Afraid that you will get there first.
That's my calling.

The still, small voice has plenty of time,
And tries to tell me:
"Love one another."
