Like the Sun - #1

The sun!

Radiating warmth to everyone,
sustaining life on earth,
needing no credit,
exerting no extra credit.

You can be like that:

Doing work that comes easily and naturally to you,
improving the lives of those around you,
changing situations for the better with your presence.

- Jim DuBois

Sometimes (again)

the food you pick out
is exactly as delicious
as you had hoped.

Old guy, reading the paper
at Stop & Shop,
"I'm one of those
everlasting survivors."

Far enough
Wide enough
Long enough


Expansive feeling of life
at the railroad bridge
over the Connecticut river

My Heart Has Always Been My Own

My heart has always been my own
with its own ways
and words
loving when it does
who it does
however it does

You might notice it,
you might not
- that is your business

A Neuron Firing

A neuron firing,
An idea forming,
A muscle moving.

A letter!
A word!
A sentence, and a poem!

What next?

A person,
        A planet,
                A galaxy!

The forces of Gravity!
The speed of Light!

-Jim DuBois
