Poems, Notes, and Drawings


The pandemic has claimed the life of our neighbor. She was a kindhearted widow, eighty-two years old. The day after visiting her on Thanksgiving, her son died from the same cause.

Yesterday evening, Saturn and Jupiter were hidden by fast-moving clouds.

The longest day
is the shortest


a ripe plum
fallen in decay

half hidden
by dead leaves

and the promises
they made

and grace
as grave

as the smile
on your face

them both
