Hey there

You there,
take this gloom away
the sky is supposed 
to be blue, not grey

a dismal 
disappointing day
the social-distancing 
party cancelled
the host is sick
her stomach hurts
then next, the tearful news
my veterinarian
can't fix Toto 
anymore

You there, 
heal my dog Toto
he's been my friend 
for seventeen years
he has the right to live 
as long as me

the price we pay
for precious loyalty 
and unconditional love
       quickly robbed away


true love is so sweet
         true love doesn't last
                  true love breaks your heart

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
