Why Be You? Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

May 16, 2016

She, alone, stood
and, debating her own best good,
faced down the gaping abyss
of conscious solo loneliness.

She knew another decision would
be, by others, easily understood
if she, reconsidering, stepped back;
let herself be lead down a different track.

She could easily hike hand in hand
through life’s journey with a man
who had never truly got
the greater knowledge and light she sought.

But she turned her vision to a loftier view;
Spread forth her arms, lept out, and flew.

Two Old Cranes’ View Of Life: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Sonnet

July 27, 2012

Life lessons from two old cranes: Happy AnniversaryTwo old cranes /
strolled calmly down the street./
I thought it somewhat strange /
that they wandered on their feet.

They could soar on mighty wings,/
not on legs thin as rails./
But they were examining things/
close-up; exploring details.

They oozed curious serenity/
as they strolled along their way./
These two old cranes taught me plenty/
of how to approach my day.

Two old, calm cranes, enjoying life together, leisurely.
They reminded me of you: Happy Anniversary!
