her ghostly touch
floats across my skin
I look back

liquor store doorway
he shakes a cup
of loose change

war at school cell
phones ringing
no answer

cool morning breeze—
grass covered in frost
how lightly the flag sways





top quarter champion



top half champion


bottom quarter champion





old and rusted
broken mirror
no reflections of me

40 years pass
his slippers
next to mine

rain drops
hitting the window pane
a child’s face

a familiar silhouette
late at night at this window
nothing but illusions


top half champion





bottom half champion


a dozen roses
fill the vase…
scribbles on the paper

water drops
from the bright red rose
a garden of love

words unspoken
scaring him
more than anything he ever said

death of a friend…
raising our glasses in your name
I’ll see you on the other side





top quarter champion



bottom half champion


bottom quarter champion





into the darkness
the soft lullaby

she dances
the moon light

silent night
lying in a dark room
Jesus responds back

Angel from heaven
falling to Earth
I see you
