Forgiveness brings the softest touch
Yet smashes walls to let in light.
We throw away the leper’s crutch.
The snow that bothered us so much
Now sparkles like bright stars of night.

Four lines define the boxy square
That keeps us safely trapped somewhere.
A circle in the ceiling might
Let in wet rain and dry sunlight.
Between these squares and circles we
Live out our dreams for harmony.

Rectangles Behind the Vine
A leaf won’t blame the maple tree
When summer warmth is gone.
Forgive the fall. Through winter see
Fresh spring to dream upon.

and then it all goes real. wink
The former dreams now make me feel
Like everything was there to heal.
I fantasize a pleasant way
To whisper happiness to you.
I send you dreams of every day
So wilder daydreams may come true.

The present is a chance to make a choice and change.

Once upon a daydream
The sky turned gray-cloud blue
While changing leaves
Of maple trees
Distracted me from you.
Forgive all these distractions
I wonder could we be
That key once lost
Found at great cost
