small stones – February 26, 2016


“A-Maze-ing Laughter” by Yue Minjun for the Vancouver Biennale

a moment to laugh
deep within the belly
to roar uncontrollably
to be a~mused
a healthy alternative
for a dark soul


small stones – January 11, 2016

when I brought you home
you were caked in mud
your beauty shrouded
an over-night soak
then a quick brushing
oh how you sparkle!

now you sit on my desk
a fist-sized quartz
a reminder of time spent
with friends and laughter
and the joys of nature
