When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…



Waltzing Weeds

Birds crow in triumph –
even weeds waltz in the sun.
Garden after rain.

I gaze upon the weed,
filled with sorrow
at the sight.
Oh Life, withered –
just dead grass
between cracks.
But in turning away,
I caught a second glance
and now wonder instead
at the beauty
that burst from the gray
with defiance.
