Favorite Quote:
"Dancing is the soul having happy convulsions." - Akila

After I worked
with the passion of a thousand
thoughts, actions,
I sat, stared at the clouds,
the rolling patches of white quilts.

If it is your will, God,
I will work until the day
he sleeps
in white quilts
next to me

as I sit, stare at the clouds
in his eyes
as he wakes.
