In honor of National Poetry Month, I am posting several poems I have written, most of them over the past four or five years in writing class. The first five are those I have selected at the request of my writing class teacher, Cora Lee Brown for submission to a portfolio she is organizing of writings from her classes over the last few years. This one is probably my favorites, partly for sentimental reasons. Oak Glen has become our weekly retreat for meditation and spiritual reading and conversation. We are there every Sunday morning whenever we are at home.
