sometimes another person
saves you
and they don't even know it
someone knows exactly 
 what will raise the spirit
a book of images
silver, cloth, paper
(three women)
to examine, perhaps with a lens?
 your eyes
a hand lens
a sherlock style glass!
and change your seeing
 on my table
these things
join the books in process
i am happy to follow where 
the books will lead me,
even a tiny one
especially a tiny one
to wear over my heart.
thank you
yesterday friends
reached out to me
you know, sometimes you need that
more than you even imagine.
there was a bear
a drum
a hawk,
words, prayers, even,
and winter
all visited me leaving
images that keep me alive.
