Old Sins Cast Long Shadows


Old sins cast long shadows,

aspersions of grey in filmy

ink to ensnare


and keep them in the

dark; this little light of mine

will only reach one small corner,

but I will let it


Another Storm

Stormy Sunflower

Another storm,

another lightning-bolt from the same source.

She’s seen it all before.

She used to hide

under the bed with her blanket,

but today,

Emancipation Day,

she smiles,

stealing his thunder.
