Reflections through poetry

These selected poems were written after my car accident and stroke

9/22/2008

When you told me that you loved him,
You turned on a particle accelerator
and blew my atoms
to bits.
I did not know what
was inside;
thank you for giving
me back to myself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love the way your
face shines when you
talk about being in love
with him.
I know how the moth
feels as he flies
towards the flame.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The kite thinks that
it is the one holding
the string until it learns to love
the dipping and the
soaring more than the
holding on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
