Pequot Song of an Initiate

A blue sky silence.

Climbed the blue staircase up to the sky
Climbed to where the roses were blossoming
    Where the roses were talking

A Poem for Esmé


Turn the page to September
A new month, a new chapter
For some a new year

Tell me dear Esmé
What plans do you have
For the day of your birth?
