Simple beauties

Dedicated with love and respect to Lois Keffer – writer, editor, friend, mentor

Pound for pound these words say less than they mean

and weigh more than they say.

Pull away every other petal and one still gets half a flower;

a down payment for the coming Spring

when the world doesn’t mind repetition

for the sake of simple beauties, multiplied.

    1. Lois, your willingness to coach and sometimes cajole me towards better writing has made me a better person. You’re a lovely and impressive soul. I have much to learn from you as a Wayfarer and as a writer. Thank you.
