Oh, Yes…

For Roi Barnard in memory of Joe

Can this mind be at peace with the moon and the stars

In my nights?


Will these feelings repose with sun, rain and clouds

All day long?


Could my body relax with trees, flowers, grass

For each dawn?


And at evening light

Are vague hopes made bright

As the glint of childhood eyes?


Oh, yes…

If my moments rejoice

In that generous chorus

Of thankfulness graciously born
