Blankets and Comfy Pants

wriggle down into it

giggle and mirth

warm it up

wrap it around

love the quiet morning

waiting on the rain and the sun

appearances not yet made

ginger, peach and cranberry

crowd in to delight the tongue

grunt with pleasure

foundling in morning light


Thoughts Entertained

what would happen

if the stars uncrossed?

if the rain called to you

like it calls to me?

what would happen

if all this time

felt like mending

to you as well?

what would happen

if this time

we were ready?

to let go

to hold on

to allow us

Feed Your Children

in the moments that stretch

small kindness

huge laughter

tiny things

love features prominently

no person can remove it

legislate it away

compassion is correct

keep it close

spread it through outstretched fingers

look at the beauty

remember, good or ill

all things are temporary

appreciate love, even for the most miniscule of seconds

let go of frustration


change comes from the ground up, not the top down

do not forget the wrongs

but do not let them fester

remember that you are the right thing

you can change the wrongs

back into love
