Unexpected Smile



me decorated

with an unexpected smile


I now expect little and live the moment

exploring while passing over


I’ve quit detaining I let

motion befalling having no


more addresses, pinheads or pencils

I found my self delighted

in the last three lines

I Was Once



I was once

part of my dad

and also part of

my mother


later but not so

literally I was part

of someone else’s


further I will be part

of the trees’ roots

contributing to the

flowers’ beauty


part of water

somewhere in

the sky all along

I was part of god


but here you

stiffen and say

I cannot


prove it





This poem is on page 55 of the published bilingual collection California Notebooks 02.



Shining Bright



it’s an afterward

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty

sensitivity shining

in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen






This poem can be read at page 109 of the published collection California Notebooks 02.




Random Cloud



Ithink I’ve lost

that power within

and from above


I believe I am

fog that endures

with darkness


I think I have

missed the wind

on my sail


a random cloud

fair and heavy

to stay away


from everything

from you from what

I do not count anymore


and I’ve left behind
