“One” poem

Onsies

a tiny silver time-machine
recovered from a drawer
transports me to a school
playground –
onsies, twosies, threesies
little girls sitting in a circle
no worries except
making it to tensies
where are they now
do they remember
playing ‘jacks’ at recess
or are they now too worried about
grown-up games

Collaboration for Peace – 31

Self Reflection

gazing into the still lake
I see a stranger’s face
staring back –
distorted with worry
brows knotted
mouth a tight slash
and then
I trail my fingers through
the cool water
inhale deeply
and watch as ripples
sweep away my cares
allowing peace to
settle over me
