The Gifts

He stood in line with the other children, as he waited his turn to stand before Master Shin and receive his gift.

The wistful and wishful of wantings penned..

Throw off the negative,
In a shuffling of the mind…

Whittled Words – Madrigal Poem

The madrigal originated as an Italian form, as a pastoral song.

Sitting on the Moon

Making snow angels in the dust,
That traces every moment touched…

Fragile Thing

Oh, how fragile,
A house of glass,
From sea to shining sea…

All it takes to see eighty years…

A trip through life with fingers crossed and eternal optimism.


A journey into the labyrinth of my sceptical mind.
