like streaming stars when he shuts his eyes.

reaching with time-marked hands that frame the sky

nothing. Nothing but one breath that tremors

with its tarnished silver and polished gold.

A man begins again with nothing at all --
Los Angeles, USA - Wed Sep 27 12:24:27 2000
the rocks of his childhood are sleeping
Hollywood, USA - Wed Sep 27 12:25:32 2000
his mind a clean slate, untainted and new,

but yet his mind, so cluttered with dust from the past,
Woodland park, Co USA - Fri Sep 29 07:04:07 2000
finds peace, wandering through those wonders: Freedom's Gifts!
