  • The Liminal Space

    The place of stillness.  Of silence and stillness. After the end has come, yet no beginning is begun.

  • With Basin and Towel

    Beauty as I’d never seen Eyes closed through mirror darkVision of servant at deedStill takes my heart apart  Humility on bended kneesSplashes hitting her feet and the floor Hands tremulous by advancing disease Undeterred for the one he adored  His bride of 60 some years Her hip broken now newly repaired Unable to reach her own feet She sat on toilet…
