Love Is A Many Splendored Thing

when it comes to love
I often reflect on Rumi’s love poem:

“The minute I heard my first love story,


From padded window seat inside café
cup of tea warms my hands
cold winds shuffle sidewalk leaves
Two tables away sit two men

Andrew Wyeth's Secret

The ancient room is austere—walls of faded white paint
floors of variable width lumber—milled locally—years of wear

ladder-backed chairs surround—a few spares on the side

how it flows through all life
from beginning of eternity

Mourning Dove

one day

Woe Is Me

Woe, woe, woe, is me
my life such a tragedy
Woe, woe, woe is me
such is my sad, sad history

Love's Refrain

Yes, we both know, my love
true love is elusive in life's journey
As we seek the ethereal with senses material
we are often fraught with doubt as we fill our hearts
