a delicate strength
seen not for what you do, but
for what you do not

ever evasive
we crawl toward it through the tar
that shrouds desired peace

a pasture serene
within which reason abides
turning in at dusk

To cure a recent lack of inspiration, I’ve decided to do a Haiku series for the next seven days on the seven virtues–prudence, justice, temperance, courage, faith, hope, love. Enjoy!

calming voices sing
praises that lift closed eyes
in abiding glee

a star falls gently
lifting ardent hands skyward
to catch fragile light

the day leaves softly
closed eyes and an open mind
drifting to tomorrow

Two Limericks

Wrote these for a Limerick contest in my hometown newspaper 🙂

As a KC native who likes to explore,
and travel to places beyond my front door,
it never comes as a surprise
when a Californian cries,
“You’re not in Kansas anymore!”

While our sports teams, they may not glitter
there’s other things we must consider.
We beat the competition
with our nice dispositions
and this makes KC a true winner!
