My Quiet Time


I pick a book
from off my shelf.
I read.  I dream
all by myself.

My quiet time
to think about
all the world
from inside out.

Give Me a Poem


"Moon Tree" by Chip Ghigna
Acrylic & polymer on wood


Give Me a Poem

Give me a book to read by the river,
Give me a song to sing to the stars;
Give me a poem to say to the child
Who captures the night in little glass jars.
