Bare Beauty

Have you ever noticed a tree standing
naked against the sky,
how beautiful it is?

There is a poem, there is a song.

Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes,
it again fills the tree
with the music of many leaves,

Which in due season fall
and are blown away.

And this is the way of life.

International Women's Day

Feeling thankful that
my daughters
live in a country
that grants and protects their right
to make the choices they wish;
in life, love, education, work
and the pursuit of happiness.
Wishing it will
one day be the same
for all women
wherever they live.

Only The Crow Knows

why that branch
the one that barely holds your weight
that leaves you tossing in the wind
until you can hold on no longer
until you fall
into the currents
of the great
