End of Days

Shadows of the trees and nights grow longer over the land Rock and earth give up their hoarded summer heat; Winds like weapons whip the leaves aloft to send them sailing in their final glory until cold whistles through the winter forest unimpeded; In heartwood deep the coming summer sleeps.

Summer Day

Heat comes after the cool of morning down out of a clear blue sky that reaches upwards towards forever. Land bakes under oven-air that parches grass and flower, sears the soul and wearies hearts and limbs. Over the mountains building towering darkening clouds confound the sunbright heat lift winds...

Life's A Beach

Advance Retreat Advance again Run back... Roar in with thunder pounding upwards through the feet and soul... Race out hissing like the dying sparks of fireworks and dreams... Waves and joy and sorrow, too, and fortune. Sign in to see full entry.

This morning as I woke I recalled the day of sadness I could not bring from memories before her death my mother's face. Not your face but something of you as essential and as dear I cannot bring to mind today and feel the rift has widened now beyond my strength to leap. Though I can stand and gaze...

Tennis for the Blind

I played the game, took my side of the net and played the best I could the best I knew lobbed ball after ball good shots, all... good volleys, you could hear my laughter, I could hear your smile... even when the ball did not return.
