Places From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
once I used
to live in a jungle
I think

I spent my time
wading off emotions
spiders and mosquitoes

crying

the light was
hardly shining
emotions were
too thick

I needed a machete

cutting off some thoughts
new emotions started
to grow tall and lean
fewer the ivy

now I live

in a green pasture
sunshine on a clear sky
and the occasional
thorn bush

Stillness From California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
I notice the silence

not anymore the chirping
or the chatter of the wind

I notice the hummingbird
trying stillness by furious

flapping I stop engaging
myself I let go of my eyes

frantic grasping of letters
on a page putting the book

where it was letting
my head down as

beheaded falling

Nights From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
have you ever
been out walking
on some nights

when the dark
air feels like water
to your skin

a splash of beauty
dense and soft
at the same time

where you step out
in total amazement
crickets singing

the sky so bright
broken up by
constellations

always expecting
to see some wonder
taking place up there

like a waterfall
of stars crashing

Dreams From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
I stand dreaming

totally defenseless
whilst entering lands
as if swimming
leaving my own

as a leaf in autumn
pushed around by
gusts of wind

to eventually land
in the comfort of
earth and there

I wait for a new
me to come
to pass my head
as on a pillow I

dream of new life

Spring From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*

the blossoms on the trees
this is the season are pink

and white both becoming to
the sky’s hues as to the thin
blushing of the passing clouds

some are already stretched
on the ground decorating grass
dirt or cement some floating

dead in puddles reflecting
though a darker sky
