World Poetry Day

To Julie, With Thanks, March 10, 2001

windchimes, forest birds
palm heels, fingertips
Percussion notes like watersprites
leaf-dappled shadow woods
muscle ridge scapula edge
Thrills running along nerve routes
only what God gave me
and a thin sheet

head, neck
shoulder, spine
gluteus, quadreceps
Intimately, professional helping helpers
accumulated anguish
of those

flute winds, raindrops
breathing, massage
Two strangers reaching


We now send you along to a place where someone who truly is a wordsmith provides reading material rather than a word mechanic providing ... something.
