…such a modest way
to describe everyday situations
that confuse and compound life.
To be able to pin point them
in 10 minutes  would be such a relief.
Hopefully they are not on TV.

Life’s passages sometimes seem 
strong and clear. Step by step 
moving toward the end of a corridor,
fully aware of dark at the end. 

And then, light through a window ─
the journey continues.

Dangerous resting place

A quiet Sunday morning,
watching this tiny hummingbird
build a nest in a towering Avocado tree.
Frantic coming and going,
then, she rests on a branch
of a dangerous and beautiful Angel’s Trumpet.
Uncaring about its toxicity
and seeming at peace.
