Welcome to various verses, a platform to share my poetry with family, friends and communities, old and new.

     The poem below is from the archives, by which I mean it was found in a faded manila folder on a yellowed sheet, copied from a typed original (about 25 years ago).

blithe, young

ariel – airy

spirit in purple

light jumpsuit,


you run across

my heart as

across the street

with leaps and

swirls of time

passing and gone.
