On Poetry, 2015

Standard

*

it’s an afterword
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

Deep Sea Diaries, August 2013

Standard

sitting on warm steps
on a summer night
at a church entrance
I did not visit
.
ahead is a gulf
lit with tiny lights
trees of different kinds
breathing in twilight
.
inside is a river
restless and charged
I try stillness in vain
nature comforts me

Up In Smoke, July 2013

.
not sure
if it was the metropolis
– and the jungles they hold
where we had roamed through
.
or the islands
within the same –
we felt alone among
thousands I could have
.
threaded on – not stapled
to my own thoughts of

failure focusing on

some other survival
.
the incessant sounds
attacking us louder
disorienting forcing

us on movement
,
or the far ones – in stillness
only the wind has a voice
stirring the waves to have
more and animals wild
.
eyes focusing off the horizon

squared lines confining
blocks or concentric ones
as the life rings on a tree
.
you count twenty eight then

call me out I found numbers
we had forgot – it used to be larger
green not the horrible burgundy
.
I shiver some on the island
we could hear the sound of
our own hair sitting close
animal’s life pulsing
