My Temple

The Mountainside is my Temple;

The Shoreline is my Masjid;

Deep in the Woods, I kneel,

The Shrine surrounds me

Happy Birthday, Queen

In the midst of Winter
The camellia blooms.
Spring is near.

Morning Weight

Each morning I wake
The weight of the day down presses.
Coffee and out the door.
At the red light I see. . .
The Sun Rise
. . .The weight lifts.

Easy Reading

I read in my easy chair,
The Princess reads curled on the couch.
For at least a moment,
All is well in the world.

I hear the ancestors

I’m at the Stove

In the background. . .

The Princess sings

. . . I hear the ancestors

Between power lines

Over warehouse rooftops

Sunrise shines through

All melts away
