small songs I sing
to join
my voice to other voices

lost birds


coming home 
from the rally 
for justice and peace—
a shimmer of stars,
the smell of baking bread

     ~GUSTS 19: spring/summer 2014


the twin beams
of the Tribute in Light
go dark. . . 
10, 000 lost birds
find their way home

    a shimmer of stars,
