A Thank You Note

  • For departing silently in morning’s first light,

Leaving me to sleep on and wake rested

For breakfast left prepared in a love statement

For allegro joint working on the farm

Devising a means of successful partnership

(on days when I would pause to ponder

The sliding clouds, the jet trail, the flight of birds)

For time gardening together to enhance our space

Two entwined plants more beautiful than each one


For appreciation of my writing, Oh, most appreciative one;

For endless patience in the face of my weakness

For the harmonious hugs and rancid rages

Like dove whisperings in a garden room

After the raucous noise of the outer world

(exit jangling traffic, enter calm climes)

For kindnesses so balming to my soul

For your light beam in troubled waters
