Eldorado, at last!

Standard

*

today the winds
in the valley are
high and strong

against the palm
trees fighting them
with a loud fuss

the mountains
fade away behind
a curtain of dust

lifted in the air
in front of them
gold swirling

souvenirs of
the Eldorado

The Lonely Trees

Standard

*

wind tending
the lonely trees

too tall to reach
a few visits here

and there are clouds
birds the music

played by the wind
kissed by the sun

caressed by rain they
get more attention

– without moving –
some of us do

Lighter Than Daylight

Standard

*

let’s not forget
the improvised song

falling from above when
you stop to meditate

wings flapping
nervously sounding

almost metallic
that clear it seems

lighter than
daylight

New Landscapes

Standard

*

I left the valley
green and humid
where wind was but

a rare guest for
the coast to be blown
away by crosswinds

sunlight and waves running
around with my wet suit
catching waves long

trips to the unknown
marine depths now I find
myself in the desert away

from things experienced
before synced in with my
passion for the new

landscapes of the spirit

The Tenderness Of The Sky

Standard

*

it’s the tenderness
of the sky
laying his shroud

over me
in the morning that
opens my eyes

to gratitude
glimpses of love
peeking through

as little drops left

after the rain
on the heads
of grass blades

Now I Lay Me Down…

Standard

*

it is right by the side
of the road the Cathedral
In The Pines Cemetery

as if you could just roll
off the side of the road
dead and ready to lay

where there are no fences
but some more noise to
endure or is it a reminder

when the sun hides
at sunset behind red
blood colored clouds

.

The Next Silence

Standard

*

I gather my thoughts
bending a little
away from the wind

that clears skies
from darkness of clouds
the air is gold

colored tiny speckles
dancing away a tip
a tap one tip more

fingers tapping with
closed eyes
a dance suspended

draw me closer
to your rhythm before
the next silence

Thirteen Ways Of Looking At a Poem – 12

Standard

12.

clouds have covered the whole
day slowing down my rhythm
I walk as barefoot on carpet
placing words carefully
dozing off a bit hanging
poetic moments behind my eyes
