WIND CHIMES AT NEPENTHE

WIND CHIMES AT NEPENTHE May the Wind that plays these chimes play within my Soul the soundless music that raises these mountains from the sea, that veils these skies with clouds, that calls the waves home to break upon the shore; May it carry my senses beyond the black and white starkness of my own...

REDISCOVERING A GIFT

REDISCOVERING A GIFT Thunderstorm passes: Entranced, I listen, waking from sleep to see ghostly flashes of lighting through the tiny opening of a window, distant across the house.

SUNSET

SUNSET We watch the sunset together, you and I. You ask, “And how have you been?” I answer, retelling the news the days have given us.
