Where would your left hand be without your right?


Waking in the night
thirst is obvious
I reach for my stainless steel litre
of water
it is full to the brim
and heavy
lifting with my left
balancing with my right
I take a long drink of the cold stuff


the companionship
of one hand to the other
is a great and obvious
teacher
this is how to be with
ALL LIFE

helping hands


let us be the hand that helps the other
for truly
there is no other

  2. Exquisite photos. Is it just me, or is your poetry getting even stronger? Is winter your muse?

  4. How true! I never think about using my left hand...but I certainly would have a hard time without it! Will ponder this for awhile...

    Yes it was a rainy rainy day. I call that photo 'when it rains it pours'. As for the sunset, I was high for hours after taking it in!

    why thank you sir, stronger poetry....
    that would be a bit dreamy for me.
    What is it you teach?
    Perhaps winter is my muse, nature is my muse and sometimes insight touches me and it comes out in writing.
