Where Had We Been All Our Lives

Before the key did its magic,


it was like

we were only breathing,


nothing more.





inside a dream.


Blank space


until the kiss

of home


opened the door.

I was also inspired by dVerse:  Poetry in Liminal Spaces, but I’m too late for the link.

Saturday Morning Cartoons (with Oreos and Milk)

A father wakes up
before everybody else

and sets the world whistling.

Except on Saturday,
when he's supposed to get to sleep in,
but you jump on his belly
and pry his eyes open
to watch cartoons with you.

He doesn't mind, though,
because you're his.

For my daddy.

Dad, remember Oreos and milk for breakfast with Saturday morning cartoons? I do. Good times. :)

Conifers and

seagrass and

where fresh
meets salt,

where the tide
meets the river

in a cocktail
of creation;

a symphony,
if you will,

of the Conductor’s hand
who sets the tempo

and shapes the Sound
I live in.

For Poetry Jam:  Where You’re At.  Peggy has asked us to write about where we live.  I live in Puget Sound, a beautiful estuary region in Washington State.
