"Good Morning, World!"

Rec-la-ma-tion

1. The reclaiming of waste, desert, marshy or submerged land for cultivation or other use.

My walk today was to the beach

where storms of yester-year

came to reach

the dunes I trod

-mountains now-

strata exposed

to show My Ears

The Word

“rec-la-ma-tion”

to echo clear —

I walked home

to turn the page

Who Cares?

Eye am The Woman

of glitter and gold

Eye have entered The Age

of Silver

to have and to hold

The Age of indifference —

Eye will never grow old
