Favorite Quote:
Today you are you
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive
Who is youer than you.

Dr. Seuss


fallen flocks
feathers in the ashes
cherry blossoms
satin sashes

eroded by sea salt
doused by dust
homes and houses
left to rust

flag painted
by morning sun
flying half mast
threads undone

stitch them together
so morning sun flies
take this moment
to arise
