Off the freeway; my father

off the freeway
in an open field
a vast church
its cross shaped in a curve
as if to hold the world

kernels, 2013

my father
who rarely ever hugs
halfway does ...
bells begin to ring
this Christmas season

Frameless Sky, December 2014

Frameless Sky is a new, innovative DVD journal from the creative Christine L. Villa.


  1. A wonderful pairing--the arms of the cross holding the world, the arms of the father holding the narrator--these parallel curves.

  2. These are very lovely - and, yes, compliment each other as metaphors to an embrace. Merry Christmas, Janet.
