enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

for years I simply couldn't see
the colour of hybridity
and, close at hand, the greenest eye
as elemental as a sigh....
Sweet pendulum of rise and fall
responded to the silent call
of amber's strange familiar glow
relying on my heart to know
this grove of wild affinity
both wrecking ball and harmony
this tender ambiguity 


  1. sincere good wishes for a new year of meaning and meaning-making, to all who dwell in the absurd, liminal spaces of thoughtfulness.

  2. of amber's strange familiar glow
    relying on my heart to know
