Weavers Words


verdant trees

 azure skies

to humanity

 from nature’s seed

clear cut forests

 atmospheric pollution

from our insatiable greed

— Lawrence H. Geller


I was low this morning

Until I cooked my eggs

With tomato and fresh basil

And a little parmesan.

And I made an espresso

With just the right amount

Of foam.

— Barbara Hoekje

Lunar Gaze

Come hither calls the moon

With its mournful lunar face

There’s no one else out tonight

No other soul to see my light

Just you and I and the deep dark sky

I’ll lead you from your inner maze

As I’ve done for those before

Who’ve sat with me at heaven’s door.

— Kirstie Jones
