Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 161
Conversations with Ivy


Cross legged in the sauna heat

We speak about the things

Which impact on our daily lives

And pull the old heart strings.

Lifting threads of humanity

To hold them in the hand.

Feel the mellow toned viola

Evoke hot tears, unplanned.

And a little boy laughs

As he wags to and fro

Before the stainless steel

Six by four's reflective flow.

An old friend retrieved

From the shelves of distrust,

Reconciled thankfully

From time's portals of dust.

Oh,the sweetness of sharing

A sweaty faced smile

In the company of Ivy

Cross legged awhile.
