Anything Can Happen


“One breath

taken completely;

one poem,

fully written,

fully read –

in such a moment,

anything can happen.”


~ Jane Hirshfield


Elfje:    (Cinquain)



belly laugh

filled with pleasure

life lived in happiness





the crack of the bat

boys of summer playing games

family together




in the blink of an eye
lightning split the sky
the thunder however
rolled on and on forever

the smell of ozone lingered
another flash answered
rain drops began their pitter patter
to the ducks it doesn’t really matter

like clockwork the afternoon showers arrive
grass, flowers, weeds, growing in overdrive
the deluge over, the humidity swells
pleasant gardens adorned with cockleshells

did mankind really evolve
another question we may never solve
so many questions, so few answers
are we creating our own cancers

let it rain, let it shine
just stand in awe of the worlds design
