fresh pie for my friend
made of cold earth
Happy Birthday

high heels dragging
dusty dresses
Mom’s make-up

warm rain on the face
feels perfect


like bark of a sycamore
divorce sickens

rays of sun bursting
through my heart
“the light of the world”


faith, family
          and friends
my lighthouse
