At the shopping-mall

Like blind man’s eyes
the door to the famed store
sees no one, silent, gone with
the hay days.

Every where new ones,
lively, full of hope, bustling
with young and bright faces–
asparagus after rain.

Some change for the sake of
change, in hopes to draw eyes,
to find a promising road to
the dream land.

An old dame steals
a glance at the nostalgist.
We nod, unspoken, yet
agree: we gray-heads are still
in crowd.

Fresh as budding leaves
Unlike faulty human minds
No clouds are stale
Ephemeral yet
Silent achiever of many
Appear as a storybook for
An innocent or
A sketch of a
Stoic philosopher
Roar then
Vanish or return home
To rise and renew

try to be one.

This one room cabin is where Rick and I stayed.
Inside is better than it appears outside.

This building across the mud puddle is a restroom.
In the wee hour, in the soft rain, I would venture
outside of my cabin. Often I’d encounter a bush-tailed
fox or something with glowing eyes caught in my

I took this photo while driving back home. Just watching
the usual cloudscape above the green hill lifted me. Nice
addition to the end of the little vacation.

There are, of course, more interesting stories. But I would
keep them in my memory. Some stories shine when you
look back.
