A courtyard
Four great oak.
Dappled light
Plays on
Green growth.
A breeze
Dances with
Yellow leaves
To the earth
Into the
Of all
Of nature
The tree
Itís dead.

It was good to see Melody. She is medicine for my soul. She gives even by her presence alone, such is the integrity of her being. Some women shine a light so clearly upon you, as for you to see yourself under their love. The gift you take home is not so much the love they give, but the awareness of the love you have.
Driving home the distance of the length of LA, I dreamt of a fine future. I thanked her for allowing my mind flight. She does not waste our time on the past and things we cannot change. She does not draw us into argument nor debate. She sees me as whole, and lets me be. In her eyes, I see a picture of myself I recognize and can honor. Like this, she gives a gift of acceptance to me.
This morning I see her managing her beautiful little girls, two at two, as they are twins. God is a genius. He knew one alone would spill her love out. It would take two together to know her.

It is grey here.
We call it June gloom.
The mornings begin softly and under cover.
Those who come to vacation find it perhaps disappointing,
making their beach day somewhat foreshortened,
but I love these mornings that withdraw the obligation of a bold sun.
My patio is a gentle place for me to write this morning.
The air is cool and against a grey backdrop
all the flowers of this bit of nature I behold,
take this protected moment to call out with all the strength of their color.
