Bower

I am grateful
that in my life I’ve seen
More trees grow than fall.

Oak and Ash overarch my Cedar house now.
The cool shade of their cozy liability
Grants such a cautious comfort.

Each year a bit closer,
cooler,
shadier,
Acorns and helicopters in the gutters
And the flowers off the porch.

Ivy, too, climbing taller on the walls,
stones,
and posts,
It’s a green grace around a blessed bower
For a creature like me,
allergic to towers.

Dose of Mama

Stress is imbalance,
with too little comfort,
with too little hope.

Our bodies cycle.
(men, too!)

We behave too linearly,
like machines,
like fools, hyper-masculine.
(women, too!)

This underlies
much imbalance
much stress.

I’m not a feminist
nor a masculinist,
but it takes no rocket scientist
to see the world needs a BIG dose of Mama,
while Daddy chills a spell.

After that,
a whole new world
can be envisioned.
Together.
Yes!
