Real and Imagined




A hand to hold
firmly
or a body pressed in embrace
warm and tender

The color blue
on a gray and rainy day

The sights and sounds of adoration
both real and imagined

Like the tiny sparks of light that dot the evening sky
so close yet so far away

The Birds of Many Feathers




To the fathers
and the mothers
with their daily setbacks and struggles

To the children
the well fed
or the painfully hungry

To the rich
and the poor
to the burdens that each must bear

To the gay
and the straight
the complacent
and the restless

To those blessed with surety
and those that forever question

To us
the birds of many feathers
flocked together
as one

Each and Every Day




Life unfolds
like brightly colored flower petals
plucked and tossed gaily
into the morning breeze

Valentines to a world
that begs to hear the words “I love you”
each and every day
