Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

The Graveled Path

I came in spring to look around
The birds were making lovely sound
Summer bade me linger
By autumn’s end I hit the ground

The graveled path in all light gray
Provided sight to see a way
Without much light
I chose to play

The wind would sweep and off I’d go
While people bundled up for snow
As time was going fast
And never more to know

A child stooped down to have a look
Then placed me in a memory book
I’m very old and yet
Glad to be the one she took.

Do You Care?

Do you care
I have fresh air
Water’s clean
A place to preen

Food not sprayed
With all that stuff
A nest displayed
Constructed rough

Do you care
There’s no more eggs
So I can’t feed
The mouth that begs

Do you care
About your own
Would you dare
Deny them home
