The Poet's Risk

I have always been on the side of the heretics,
against those who burned them,
because the heretics so often turned out to be right....
Dead, but right.

Noise reduction

when i need to get away from the paint and brushes
i love to embroider.
with each stitch
i can center my spirit...
far away from all the noise of
the world.


i live in a place where
a glance out the window might bring a surprise....
one Friday afternoon eight of these guys
were hanging together on the mountain behind my house.
then, they all bedded down on the hillside,
watching the fading light...
waiting for the night.
regal, beautiful and content.

i felt very lucky to be a quiet & hidden witness.
