so brutally cold

the wanderers keep looking

no warmth to be found

death waits with a steady hand

compassion opens its door

*please watch over and protect those who cannot protect themselves*

The Nutcracker Act II – Chinese Dance


The Chinese Dance



leaping and twirling

cheerfully energetic

flutes tickle the ears

The Nutcracker Act II – Arabian Dance

The Arabian Dance


quietly subdued

an exotic seduction

she moves like fluid

Dear Mr. Frost…


sweet sting of his kiss

cheeks blossom like red roses

a courtship with Jack

Hot Cold night for a date.

a sunday afternoon

cars quietly sit

no humans traipsing about

silence of snowfall

flickers for mom

a glow in the room

she lights them for her mother

eight flickering flames


menorah 2

December 1, 2013

The Hanukkah menorah belonged to my mother’s father.

The mats below were made by Jordan in 1997 and Peyton in 2000.

My mom passed away December 10, 2004.

darkness of winter

the darkness of winter brings a sadness inside –

an awareness so many are gone.

like the colors of autumn fading away,

cherished memories seem to wither along.


this time of year used to mean so very much –

days full of holiday cheer


now i barely see a crumb of what was

i see only sadness mixed with tinges of fear.


i wish i could ignore

the merriment which surrounds me,


the media will not stop pounding it into my head.


i could only lock the doors to the world and disappear,

i could exist without this feeling of dread.

a breath of nature

unrelenting force

both wispish yet explosive

whistles and rumbles

paradox of strength and sound

quite simply – the blowing wind

You cannot see it, but it is very windy……..

kiss of winter





trees dancing

leaves floating down

like colorful rain

landing on frost kissed grass.

air which nips one’s nose and toes,

flannels and fleece to warm them up

and hot cocoa to sip and savor.

wrath of winter is preparing her BITE.



frost kissed

frost kissed grass
