Happy Birthday Dad

Water's Prayer

Leafless aspens groom
the iced breeze, while below

a brook descends the mountain
with its musical story, remembering

the serenity of sky, and lightning's clear passion.
Water knows what is far will be near.

Water says choose that which closes distance,
choose touch. When snow falls,

and a green mystery is carried
by all that moves,

choose love.

Congrats on getting to see the Dali Lama.

My dad is going downhill quickly. The brain tumors are winning.
