Visions and memories
pass through my mind
as I desperately try
to remember
and re-live those
moments, hours, and years.
Some are wonderfully clear
while others blur
like tear-filled eyes,
trying in vain
to see the past,
and make it so
once again.

I dedicate this to my horses, Black Jack, Bubba and Lakota; To my cat, Tasha; To Vicky, my golden spider monkey of 18 years; To my dogs Judy, Cheetah, Sean, Arrow, Randy, Ben, Nina; And to all the women I have loved who had the good sense to move on.
