the first snow came
before all the leaves had fallen

no red, orange and yellows
some still cling
ghostly green

what is the sound of one hand clapping
how do you know when a fitted line


every step forward

I am wondering – now in my fifth decade – how I have acquired so much stuff – and why do I still want it?

Oh, I think, I paid so much for those shoes and the purse to match and I do so love how pretty they are – but what do I need of turquoise kitten heeled sandals when I walk in the gravel and mud?

Maybe if I could let go of those shoes and the purse – which I haven’t used in some years now – then the rest will fall out of my cluttered house like these last leaves of autumn.

personal mazes
Walls clear
Or opaque
I see you now
Or not now

Your essence
Lively and real
Lives in my heart and head

False passages
Fill day’s hours

Don’t let me be a burden
Or obligation
In moments of oppression
Or fear

Now my now
Will find you
Your now

both working

electronic miracle
these little cell phones
sharing sounds across an ocean of time
nine hours
nine lives transcended
now one now
one joyful now

tangling words
and tongues
we laugh
talking about talking
face to face

later I’m thinking about all the other possible
