Winter, Mom Nature pulls out her Big trowel Slathers the Earth with snow Like frosting on a big fat cake Smoothing over all One might otherwise notice Before you tripped over it Snowshoeing is a cake walk Like walking on a giant cake Beneath the frosting A cracked and cratered disaster Each step an adventure Your snowshoe might sink   A few inches or a couple of feet Life is like a cake, too With M&M’s, chocolate chips And ...

How does it feel to be in the "Junk" folder?

Not so bad here All these Russian women Eager to be met … Tatyana, Maya, Larisa, Anzheilka … All with the same subject line: “Hi.”   Smugglers of Dubious hyperlinks They chatter In Russian of course Happy conversation In a language you don’t know Can be a bit of a lonely sound But better     Maybe Than silence - One can smile At melody and rhythm Without making eye contact Quacks in another corner Offer “enlargement” or “...

Flowing from a source Felt but not seen Appearing in moments Like a wild animal Phrase of sunshine Its course bends Round the heart A caress of other Where no other can be Stirring meaning   Falls out A flurry A few crystals Dancing in air   Separateness Mysteriously Drawing power Silently explodes Transforming Everything -- Tom Rubenoff

The movie unfolds A series of stop-action still-lifes Twenty-four frames might make A gesture or a word Forty-eight or seventy-two frames Might convey Stillness A camera takes a picture To make a frame Life unfolds In a series of moments An in-breath is a moment An out-breath is a moment Birth and death Both moments We don’t know who or what Makes moments We only know The most important one is This one.    ...

Story
Tagline
Husband, father, poet, musician, door hardware genius.
Introduction
In my poetry I report the depth and breadth of what I sense and feel in the physical existence.

As a musician I play to make the ensemble sound good, and write to amuse and provoke thought and feeling. 

As a door hardware genius I embrace innovation and revere established standards, helping others by learning and by teaching.
