This rise of incivility, hate mongering, and inhumane acts have settled in. It’s sowing itself into our fabric. I worry it’s a stain not easily removed.

a complex legacy

inhumane circumstances
normalized for too long

cotton fields
bloom with the DNA
of my ancestors

The Noise

poking through the noise
an enchanting melody
soothing hectic mind

deep in each note, a life’s tale
playing from the soul, a gem

A Cherita – Groovy

a hushed crowd

held by the groovy meanderings
of the bass in the quartet

fingers snapping
toes tapping,
jazz set begins

Splash of Color


fallen leaves
splash color under
autumn skies

Ooops! We are suppose to be using synonyms, so here goes: –

fallen fronds
splash color under
gray fall skies
