Fragments


I call these short poems "Fragments" because they are pieces from other places -- comments I've left at places or just some doodlings.


Inside Out

She stares at white paper,
unsure, a bit tentative
at first. And then she finds,
or stumbles upon,
a stone to cross,
a stone to turn
inside out.

On Notice of “To Be Published”

These words from stones,
from a life lived,
from bits of data
infinitesimally small,
to pages shed by woods,
cycled and recycled to use
for beauty,
encouragement,
inspiration;
to help us see
what is there
and to savor the life
of the
infinitesimally
large.

Pieces

The pieces are souls;
the shards, hearts.
The inside story begins
with a blue mist,
but warm.

Spin Top

I once knew a man who
had a spin top like
the one the woman had in
her closet with a
window and
he loved it.

The Poetry Editor

I have good
friends, who
tweetly
alliterate and
alliterately
tweet. I
only collect the
tweets and
see what hatches.

Beautiful.

This one -- The inside story begins
with a blue mist,
but warm. -- this one felt like cinammon melting on warm buttered toast.

Evidently, I liked it more than I even knew...must have gotten crazy with my computer...sorry about that.

Love these. Never thought about saving some of my comments.

I like all of these very much and remember a few of the places you left them. They leave that wonderful message "I see" because you do.

nAncY's image is one of my favorites.
