Long-anticipated meeting. Finally.

Today, i met one of my role models. Caroline Clare, woman of God and woman of proverbs 31:26. Best day to meet a beloved teacher and friend-close-as-big-sis.

WE went to Salt Lake City, attended Mass at 11 am, hung around for a while and talked to Cavin the Catholic Convert and then we lingered in the sanctuary, whispering while the pipe organ watched.   When we were hungry, we hightailed to The Tea Grotto and talked.

and wrote poems. 🙂


June 12

Wintergreen hillfoggy laughs

But butterflies still grasp

And nerves are rubberbandball boingy.

Steeping in creased undereye sleep

And even on concrete

Just so far too giddy.

Until a tawny sun strolls hand-in-hand


Because WOW. It’s finally you.

Not only in the flying of mind

But in handshakes and leafgreeeeeeen

Flying arches Gothic

And Romanesque

Because not only but also

There’s God heere next to

Two impossibly puzzled

Slightly spazzled us

Teacher and student,

Friend by friend

Melted under warm matcha

And red concoctions of possibliteas

I wouldn’t drink my tea any other way

Because even Chrismas can be now

Since you are.
