Life Springs

Sitting in a dark room

breeds thoughts of the soul

not to be indulged


the bliss of life lies

in the simple


the penetrating sunlight

pierces through the abyss


illuminating all the shadows

dank dark crevices


new life springs from death

to be reborn anew like

a butterfly its cocoon


Raspberry Bush

The raspberry bush

expanding full of life

seemed to offer

endless tart bounty


they were best picked

right from the vine

no need to rinse

or put in a fancy bowl


the red juices stained

your finger tips

a mark of remembrance

for their gifts


the gentle wind rustled

the leaves whispering to

the berries almost

begging for you to remember
