Can't Put the Pen Down…

Just Peachy

Blanch and flay
pull the stone away
slice and save for another day.
When winter winds fret
and you almost forget
the sweetness of summer I`m willing to bet
those peaches will melt
winter`s snowy white pelt,
and remind you again how August once felt.


Breathing Free

The best things in life are fleeting;
the savour of a home grown melon, dripping sweetness,
the caress of a soft chinook wind on a winter cold face,
the oriole’s song vibrating down the ravine,
the prismatic gems on a raindrop studded lawn,
the good earth breathing humus into the dusk.
The best things in life are fleeting and worthy
of remembrance so that in dark moments
we may close our eyes, hold them close,
and breathe free again.
