The Songs Of Butterflies

Standard

*
it is a revelation
not one cicada
sounds the same

a butterfly sitting
by me admiring
something I lose

myself on such lightness
I use to tell children
to stop and to listen to

the songs of
butterflies as
they nodded back

This poem, written in 2014, is from the collection California Notebooks 01, click on the title if interested in your own copy.

Intertextures – Crossing Rivieras

Standard

*

.
some children still
enjoy looking out of a bus
window searching trains
trucks more than the blue sea
.
exulting at what
we have lost sight for
memorizing every street
name while we tired sit
.
unconscious among furrowed
brows sore and deluded a curtain
on our window to shun away the light
we who like to walk on our own feet
