The Other Side

The morning I first saw the harbingers,

I had been worried about my blood pressure--

what things elevate it,

what things calm it down:

Swimming lazily forward

without a ripple

forward, turn, back,
forward, turn, back,

the air filling up & releasing,

my shoulders gliding along

all the while I think





But, oh,

how I love the ones that elevate.

They say

Come Alive!

The World is full of so many Special Opportunities


Welcome to the New World!

Like the dove said without saying

when it landed on the windowsill

holding a green twig,

its shadow flickering

in the watery light.
