One Of Two

each circle self distinct
bark barrier between
but time and proximity
merge two into one

In Community We Nestle Together

like kernels on the cob
our places distinguished
by proximity to each other

Our Close Proximity

the storm
an instruction
of togetherness

Gathered Together

our purpose
ordained by proximity
to one another

Everything In Its time

everyone’s fledged
the nest rests
as apples ripen


in the small space
between them
grew accommodation of others


nothing in common
but proximity of place
root enough for community

Distance’s Proximity to Closeness

in the distance runs the town
while I tend my quiet surrounds
