Balancing Act

Squirrel on a high wire
how can it be
that you don’t fall down
and break your little knee?

You hover for a moment
then twist and go back,
swaying and scrambling
no fear and no slack.

Crazy little creature,
how’d you get yourself down?
When I’m on a high wire
there’s no hope to be found!


Darkness (haiku)

It is in darkness

that we are able to see

the light of the stars.

Life Speaks

When there is nothing left to say,
when there are no more words,
when even thoughts can’t find expression, 

Life speaks for itself.
