The person whose hair is around
the white plus sign will visit

will blink soon.

Another Sunday today, and I 
remember this day in a chapel 
in a city by the sea,
not a Sunday.

She looks like an angel here.
The naan an edible halo.

happy gardens

A friend's book on garden designers 
and their personal gardens was a finalist 
for an award by a gardeners' guild. 
Grow grow grow, book, 
may you live a beautiful life.

I like how the Addams Family 
encourages people to play 
with their food.

Today I listened to a valedictorian say 
'be afraid of not changing' and I
have come to like to shoot the sun.

happy tail

One of our cats has taken
to chasing her own tail.
I think she's happy.
And the tail has a dent.

I like clips of different kinds,
and have saved the plastic ones 
my Oma used years ago. 
As sturdy as she was.

Today I walked by this word
within the word 'police'.

shelter

This is the old shelter at a train stop. Wooden walls and sliver-windows, it stands, locked, next to the new shelter of glass and metal. When I asked a young girl which one she likes better, she said the new one, because it's shiny.
