Two Perspectives


Birds sing
outside my door
a mini symphony
to delight and lighten the soul—
I breathe.

The Dull Drone

The dull
drone of the doves
broke the peaceful morning,
disturbing the muse, silencing
all words.

. . .

Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings:
it takes its origins from emotion recollected in tranquility.
—William Wordsworth

. . .

And always—

Be kind. Be brave. Be you.
