Friday is Recycling Day

Blue boxes crammed with

container goods, ends folded over,

make space for more


—cardboard from Costco

mimics origami birds and trees

reproducing a landscape

open to sunshine and rainfall


exposed egg cartons, soup cans

and glass jars get pressed and

squeezed together in small hope


of prolonging purpose.


My poems are published in: Crux, Alive Now, Presence Journal, Weavings, Island Journal, Prairie Journal, Prairie Messenger and Transition Mental Health Journal among others. My second collection of poems, Sky Under Water: poems for where we live is on ibooks. My third collection, Little Dove, is available by contacting me directly
