December 10, 2015

*Anew friend shared a poem she’d written about her ancestor’s well-traveled Scriptures … something which I have (my Great-Grandfather’s Bible), which prompted this:
I’m deeply moved by/
her well-traveled legacy,/
matching my own Book.

Legacy Of Moving Helpers: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

March 6, 2011

Moving? I’ll raise my hand
to volunteer;
to hold the other end.
I’ve always been here.

Always been a guy
to help people move.
I couldn’t say why;
it’s just what we do.

My folks would get the call,
Grandparents and uncles, too.
Brothers, sisters, without fail:
we’d help people move.

And now you’re heading down a new road,
just call me: I’ll help you lift your load.
