Looking On

Her whole life looking on she spent,
Now it’s the time to take a chance:
To take her turn among the dance
And live her life with real intent

Original Poems

Admission Decision

I cannot stand this anymore

To feel so much, but speak in code

I must give way or I’ll explode

My pieces washed up on your shore

Original Poems

Amid the Stars

Amid the stars I choose to be,

Among the empty depths, my place:

My home, the frozen depths of space

My spirit, stilled, in perigee

Original Poems

Perspective

A sense of humor finely honed

To serve as nature’s soothing salve;

Sometimes we just see what we have

And others, only what we don’t

Original Poems

Wine

The taste of wine she loves so much

The happenstance of grapes and years

The liquid joy – fermented tears

The softness of a lover’s touch

Original Poems

Watching Sailboats from Work

I see the sails out on the bay

The wind, it blows them where it will

And if I could, I’d be there still

Instead of where I am today

Original Poems

By Way of Apologizing

The choice I’d made was just insane

To give up so much I hold dear

And then you happened to come near

So I lashed out in rage and pain
