Walking on cloudless night, I turned my head

And saw streaking through the sky

A blazing fire of white.

It lit up the darkness and turned night to day

But I knew when I saw it, that it was meant only for me.

“Witness the beauty of my creation” whispered in my head.

I was His audience of one.


I cried as the love of God filled my soul.

All for me.


.                      Matchless

“I’m a letter writer,” I protest. “Not a novelist.”

“So?” says T. “Write letters.”

“But I write letters only my mother would read.”

“So write to your mother.

Others can read over her shoulder.”

“I’m an occasional gardener,” say I. “Not constant.”

“So write to your green-thumbed dad:

‘Letters from an occasional gardener,'” says she.

And so began my anthology, Audience of One:

“Letters only my mother would read,”

“The occasional gardener,” and

“Tuesdays with Tammy”

It was a bright and sunny day
and though I was content
I knew the dreadful day was coming
in a thick white envelope was coming
the tax man was a coming
with a statement to shatter us all.
