Poems, Notes, and Drawings

Still Here

A peal of thunder so loud and so near, the windows rattle and the house shakes. Or, to put it more succinctly, a skyquake.

To happen upon a spring while walking through meadow and wood, and to find strawberries bubbling up from the ground. Or, to put it more succinctly, a mindquake.

Suddenly awakening upon the completion of one’s sixty-third trip around the sun, to the voice and touch of a loved one. Or, to put it more succinctly, a dreamquake.
