wishing tree’s
leaves

umbrella me

while i pledge thanks to
source for
its..

shade i invade and
hard ground
i weigh
down,
the..

beliefs
i don’t need,

no wish wasted,
just praise
for

the sunlight
my buds
tasted.

Treasure

bed, bedroom, boudoir, brain storm, comfort, fairy lights - inspiring  picture on Favim.com

if it were easy
you’d lose
heart,

and if i had
nothing
left
to

learn
from you,

i’d turn my ear
and let
you

run on like any
motor going,

but i prosper on
the riches
of your

heart
and tongue,

let my ears drink
the gold from
each coin
and..

may our eyes
drown in
sun.

One Candle

plunging the ponds
of past
but..

each delve yields
far less than
the last,

i’ll find a new
crutch to
rest

my burdens or
stand up
taller..

to see how much
weight..

my joints can
handle
and..

if i don’t burst
into flame..

i’ll still find shade in
the warmth of
one candle.

Baby Spoon

mother digs out my spoon
from the baby
years,

never knew she kept
records
too,

only mine rust
in shade
of..

basement
box,

hers rest spotless
within reach

in squeaky kitchen
drawer, where

they may be seen,
touched and
reused..

exhumed from the
archives

handy, in times we
need our past
revived.
