Lunar Launch

Dark shadowy splendor!

Light cascading through the shimmering wind-stroked Maples.

A sultry brilliance caresses the room,

     radiance engaging the gears of longing

          playfully pouring from the sky

               in this naked room, on this naked floor.

 Wake not – the shining cataract

      nourishes this demon as she plays.

Dance, sing — she has her way,

      drawing from the cove of primordial night

I have walked a varied path. I was a Christian Brother, an English teacher/counselor and Licensed Psychologist. I have a twice monthly column in the Duluth News Tribune and have had a story published in the Nemadji Review and placed third in this year’s Jade Ring contest of the Wisconsin Writer’s Association. I was a commentator for KCRB, Minnesota Public Radio in the 90s. I transplanted to Duluth to be closer to grandchildren.
