Peace

We, Angels and Mortals, Believers and Non-Believers,
Look Heavenward and speak the word aloud. 
Peace, We look at our world and speak the word aloud.
Peace. We look at each other, then into ourselves 
And we say without shyness or apology or hesitation.

Light

Light, my light, the world-filling light,
the eye-kissing light,
heart-sweetening light!
 
Ah, the light dances, my darling, at the center of my life;
the light strikes, my darling, the chords of my love;

Sunset

And clasps the shadows to its breast;
The crescent moon shines dim on high;
And in the lately radiant west
The gold is fading into gray.
Now stills the lark his festive lay,
And mourns with me the dying day.

The Cat's Song

My lover, my friend, my slave, my toy, says
the cat making on your chest his gesture of drawing
milk from his mother’s forgotten breasts.

Let us walk in the woods, says the cat.

The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
