When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…



I took for granted
this incredible vantage
until it was seen
only in dreams,
a monochrome
of my once colorful home,
so I zealously steep
this view inside – deep –
guarding against the day,
hopefully far enough away,
when only faded memories float by
like empty clouds in the sky.

Speeding Across

Speedy little car
flashes across the Bixby.
Monumental trust.

Bixby Creek Bridge


Inspired by a visit to Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur, CA and posted as a response to the Daily Prompt: Too Big To Fail (I only ran with the title of the prompt…)
