The Dresses for Haiti
project I worked on,
somehow my focus shifted
and the dozen ended
up being dresses for

Not much, really,
in the face of such devastation,
but it's what I do
and maybe there are
little girls in Alabama
who will know
that someone cares?

I still play dress up,
but now I use fresh
camellias from Mom's
garden. Doesn't this make
my tennies snazzy?!!

Really? Who came up
with this name and how
can we get it changed?

strings of pearls
pale by comparison
to strings of bleeding hearts
loaded onto bowing branches
sprinkled with morning's dew

inspired by what I see out windows,
what I put together mimics
mere colors and general appearances

but what the Creator
has done
humbles me
to the core

the gift of being alive:
isn't it grand?

Whenever I close my eyes
all I see is red and white,
glowing embers that
warm my soul,
coaxing me to move
from human being to human doing
But for right now,
I just want to bask in the memory
and I'm pretty sure that's o.k.
