Song of Movement

they stand my dancers three

with arms flung wide in ecstasy

on dresser top to show me how

to move each day

in bronze delight

they do not change position – yet

it seems to me from time to time

they move to encourage me

to raise my arms

to make an arc

to slowly turn

to bend to floor

and then rise up again

they are young and lithe

and my aged frame just tries

to straighten up to reach where they reach

for dancing highs and lows

I sing and move

I circle round

determined still at 86

to dance each day

I move and sing

each time new song

now matter how I look I

still – will – dance

The One Who Died That Friday

the one who died that Friday

he walked on a certain path

caring for folks as he went

saying “follow me”

rules were not that important

when people needed his help

he welcomed all regardless

and said “do not fear”

he turned the tables over

and yelled “you’re doing it wrong—

love truth – be kind to others –

do justice each day”

the one who died that Friday

not for my sins did he die

those in power set it up

that long torturous death

but Friday was not the end

he still continues to live

in those who follow the Way

in each one – who loves

A to Z

am trying to figure out

best as I can – who is in

control in this corona time

day turns to night back to day back to night

even as we stay six

feet apart or more – I am

grasping for truth in the midst of falsehoods

hope in the midst of fear

insight in the center of confusion

joy in the middle of distress and

knowledge instead of questions

love – always – and

more love – so there may be

no control – and yet there can be

opportunity to



responses of saying a prayer

singing a chant

trusting the meditation and

understanding a new reality

valuing some exercise plus a dance outside – and finding

wholeness with flashes of wisdom – take an

x-ray now of this time – put

yourself in a place to still find

zest and zoom for living
