SHARED SPACE There once was a lady who shared some space, With another she would like to smack in the face; The muttering, the mumbling, The incoherent jumbling, Made it difficult to occupy the very same place.
3J’s A cry in the sky. Above, gnarly brown fingers – Three blue jays, perched high.
RESPITE A morning’s surprise – A thin sheen of dewy grass. Faint hint of a thaw.
PHONY Always smiling, sweet. Kind, saccharin voice – masking, Malcontent, discord.
WHITE FLAG Distracted today. Disorganized, common theme. Dishevelled I am.
SHAME Majestic creatures, Noble, gentle, so loving. Will we let you die?
BELIEVE Pale light, greeting me. Dark, cold but with a promise, Of a warmth to come.
INSOMNIA The bark of a dog. Trees, groaning in the fierce wind. Music from wind chimes.
SENTINALS Dusk on a dirt road. Bare trees, red hue, poised upward. Avenging angels.
JOY A roll in the grass. A cool drink from a puddle. A nice belly rub.
