Getting to know me poems

Since this blog is new, and maybe people will be visiting it from poetry sites where I have gone to play, it seems right to put up three of recent poems about who I am.

I write

Why do I write...
Why did I start...
It feels like wondering
why I walk or talk
or eat or breathe,
such a natural process.
My mind produces word
pictures, strings stories
together - just does,
no reason always has.
I only hope it always will.

Never by Parts

Some enter cold water by parts,
toes, thighs, belly, finally face.
Not me. Not partly. Not possible.
I rest warm on the bank, fully clothed
or strip naked, breathe deep, plunge in.

I am as I have always been,
one who jumps at sudden noises,
colors in crayon and word,
runs out to catch the moonrise,
likes fresh air, lemons, ginger
champions underdogs, stays
quiet until challenged, fierce
under threat, tenacious,
takes refuge in dawn, dusk,
mist, lives between worlds,
loves hard, grieves quietly,
picks up pebbles, feathers,
hopes as much as I fear.
