“But I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”

My cat sleeps

my cat sleeps well
on the couch beside me
I am safety

They cascade














they cascade
warm orange bright gold
down the vase
spilling fresh fragrance 
my friend's nasturtiums

Mystery Unsolved

I step outside 
to the immediate strong smell of smoke
but none to see.

Clear blue skies in every direction
are interrupted 
by the tops of hills and mountains.

The quiet street
is undisturbed.
When I step back inside the smell is gone.

(I could get in my car and go hunting
but there's coffee here
and a book to read.)
