Moving On




a vacant chair

in an empty room


let me help you

fill up the many gaps


let me stand tall

with my broken

bones I know


what loss is

large as a planet


getting to be a small

point in the dark



Veduta aerea EBZU0949 small



This poem, written on Dec. 2013 in Rancho Mirage, CA, was published for the first time here on 15 January 2014 and later became part of Volume 01 of the California Notebooks.

Artist, poet, photographer, reader, lover, walker, traveler. Feeling in wilderness.

    Re: Poetry anthology in aid of The Book Bus charity

    Bennison Books ( is planning to publish an anthology of poetry in aid of The Book Bus. All profits will go to this amazing charity

    I am writing to ask if you would consider contributing a poem to the anthology.

    Please contact me if you would like more information. It would be wonderful to include some of your work as I’m sure it would encourage a greater number of people to buy the anthology and raise more money for The Book Bus charity.

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Kind regards
