Sunrise on the Vashon Island ferry dock, July 2011 - Puget Sound beauty
A friend from the Midwest saw this photo of the sunrise over the Vashon Island ferry dock, She asked: “If one sees this every day, does one notice the beauty everyday?”
Valid question, to which I wrote this haiku:

Beauty shows herself./
She appears in diff’rent forms./
We embrace each view.

Comparing Intensities: Revolutionary Email Sonnet

July 5, 2010

Your intensity
was obviously
not as intense
as where mine went.

I figured
you were tired
or too busy
to write me.

So I went West alone
and had island fun.
Just my brother’s family
and intensely me.

Now I’ve returned to the mainland, refreshed;
Ready, if you are, to give you my best.
