A Hint Of Poetry

Standard

*

I wish no one
to die without a hint
of poetry

a hue of love
compassion or
passion

I wish you
all the urge to cross
over this

threshold
while in your home
a nice skin

seeking a touch
from heaven to come

Hands – Eulogies 2014

Standard

*
when dad died they
clothed him for funeral

his hands so beautiful
crossed over his chest
they were the only thing

talking of him to me

I took a picture my
relatives anger rose
I could not avoid that

I haven’t seen it once

that picture it’s hiding
away to be gazed at on
a day when I’ll accept

distance or enjoy
closeness where
will my hands

go when I die

not on my chest
nor on my belly
for that short

time of the viewing
a sense of lack

of no more breath

a heaviness not favoring
digestion nor straight aside
as a soldier of whose army
.

California Notebooks, 2014

Standard

*

as I try to conquer time

that stillness of the eternal

 

on a gravity laden earth

revolving on itself

 

I beg to trample on

new soil and roads

 

larger horizons in

the foolish attempt

 

to make believe

I’m in truth flying

Crossing Rivieras, Ciapà Park # 4, 2014

Standard

*
under or above
removed from usual

grounds from valleys
to enter quieter realms

stillness and marvel
to be marginal

observing whether
with fish or birds

a new silence
lingering in

eternity
