California Notebooks – Freedom

Standard

*
I realize we
do not need more
cosmic abstractions

nor painful flights
to the Himalayas tip
for the misty fog

that sometimes
surrounds us in
a cage of boredom

to wane at the sound
of us being liberated
as we simply focus

on what we know
now that we didn’t
know last week

The Route Of The Skies

Standard

*

I remember well

the route of the skies

I may be on clouds

.

as you said

 .

I may not need

to tread on soiled

divorced paths

 .

the air is thin above

and the view is fine

I wish my wings back

Desert Life

Standard

*

from among the metal bars
escape the road runners
from the golf fields

I shall follow the other band
of elderly retired – those
who drive further into

the desert to sit time
at hand to watch the
migratory birds being

stopped by no borders

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Behind Bars – July 2014

Standard

*

each day I forged
a mantra to change
ordinary life into bad

it was freedom
I searched for the most
while sinking behind bars

the harder my heart
the farther the key
the darker the vision

The London Hours, 2012

Standard

*

we are not in the race

how do others run

so persistently we

recognize each other by

a few comments

.

doomed to freedom

.

handicapped by too many falls

we are pros not amateurs

the intended and the unintentional

.

no one is as beautiful as we are

unique almost original

.
