The Safe Harbor

Can you imagine something

 beyond your conception


Can the truth hide from view

 exposed in plain sight


Can you forget to remember

 or remember to forget


Is all darkness misleading

 —the safe harbor of light


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2019)






Waiting For Time

My mind is a garden

 whose plants have grown tall


Their season end harvest

 awaiting the call


Ideas and feelings

 cross over in rows


The laughter of children

 to lead where they go


My thoughts now a storeroom

 the food all put up


Its sustenance waiting

  for time to erupt


The answers gone fallow

 inside of my head


All questions reseeded

   —and pointing ahead


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2019)

Unto You

All worth free of sanction

 its value beyond time


Our oath most revealing

  a memory divine


The Bard more prophetic…

 “To Thine Own Self Be True”


One meaning transcendent

   —that gift unto you
