A Poem for Lisa


A Poem for Lisa

A dear friend of mine lost her Daddy today after a long illness. She is heartbroken. I didn’t quite know what to say, so I wrote it in a poem. I hope it helps her.

Fires of the Heart


 

transparent

harness

a fine

energy

of

elasticity

holds

down

the

fires

of

the

heart

Box of Love


lunch boxes
lined up on
the counter
full of love
and goodies
taken for granted
they’ll never know
just how full
they really are

Truth


east or west

distinguish the laughter

from the love

the edge of your opinion

chains hold its true shape

a wild animal

pounds on the walls

break down the doors

and stomp on the west

were you speaking

from the reserve?

overrun with them

its too late
