Return to Sauvie Island

White picket fence, lavender plants in bloom

Thoughts visit

White pickets

And lavender’s fragrance

Taking me back to summer days

With you

Two Words

Two Words, Hope, Despair

I shot a cruel word into the air

Hitting the tablet of a heart

It crushed and laid it bare

I shot a kind word into the air

With loving thought and care

A hope and dream it did impart


Words have power to destroy or build up.

Think before you speak.
