Special times and places link themselves together / within my memory like a string of precious pearls. / Why so? Why this or that and not another? / Yet they persist and wear the passing years....
My brother had a sweater he liked to wear.
He wore it every day and everywhere
until it shrunk and hardened in the suds of life,
but then he gained another, new for old
I believe. Easy to say, harder to practise / unless there is a fire ablaze within, a passion / to follow on a route of faith with resolution.
Fluttering wings and beak with dew-kissed leaf — / an awesome sight when God remembered Noah. / On desert sand in shade of juniper, depressed Elijah / saw a special food delivery by ravens.
