Priceless : A hunger for life

Good health.

Faithful Friends.

For I have lost as much as I have loved.

Rain Mantra

The rain comes gentle this morning

says: there are things that come and go

says: for all rain, there is also sun

taps out Quiet, Quiet, Quiet

on leaves like a mantra

louder than the train whistle

and steady increase of cars

that say: another day begins

and birds who sing: no matter the rain

in a hopeful tune

that’s hard to ignore.
