Apocalyptic Epiphany

Global Apocalypse?
We joke, draw silly cartoons, we know
that the idea is unscientific.
Ludicrous at worst.

And yet
we devote time, energy and creativity to explore it,
discuss it, laugh at it, do everything but ignore it.
And yet

All over the world
someone stands alone, outside of it
while they experience their own
Personal Apocalypse.



Mother’s Day

She was a real person.
She would not have been happy on a pedestal.

She took chances.
“What have you got to lose?” she’d say.

She enjoyed every moment
and knew the time to laugh and sing was now.

She not only smelled the roses
she planted, grew, and tended them lovingly.

Every day in my life I loved my mother.
Every day in my life I always will.
