Mischievous, clever, mysterious creatures.
Then I slept beneath a giant oak tree
and stories of the past came flooding back to me.
Answers to questions I’ve always had about myself.

Light to Color Our Day

each new day
begins with light in the east
to color our day,
this morning a rainbow greeted me
when I looked in your direction

the hometown team
returns to a media blizzard
an icy reception
but underneath it all
little hands clamor for attention
