Author has written 20 stories for General, General, Life, Young Adult, and Manga.I give you the square root of the sky,
the large province of hope and the view
from the top of the hill at the end of the beach.
I give you finches in the apple tree,
sunset, west over ice,
the wedge of sunlight in late afternoon
with its warm expplosion of cloud
at the end of a dark day——the brooding clouds overhead
unable to repress the adventure.
I give you guardians in the form of cloud
and snow and summer rain on calendula.
I give you balance and assurance to allow
you to dance along the edge of disaster
without looking down.
Here is the compass from my past
I give the polished remains of glass,
