Marvel



Marvel at everything as if it is new. It is.

                                                               
~ with due thanks to Anna Akhmatova.

all the voices



all the world’s wilderness 

we hold in our hearts, 
all the voices we defend
in words and in silence. . .

All day and night, music
a quiet, bright
reedsong. If it

River smiles



'we are all the children 
of one mother,' his words echo 
from somewhere in memory~ 
in its silent depths, 
river smiles

meandering



meandering through 
the sunset shades, reminding 
us of the places 
we've been and yet not ~ 
Chaliyar. . .

lend me


lend me thy words
but not your thoughts
so I may fend mine, 
and give form 
to my own



in the quiet of this place
thoughts flow. . .
unhindered

Magic of the Universe


                                                       In the thick of this concrete jungle, 
                                                             they visit - the ladybirds, 
                                                 from a place faraway in time and space ~
                                                     'miraculous ' becomes a small word. . .
