February 1st 2022

Standard

*

as I contemplate

morning light peaking

through cold mornings

.

it’s the sound of the wind

running low on the streets

that gets my attention

.

getting distracted

following fast

moving

.

dried leaves

rustling through

disappearing

.

as dawn catches

up with me

behind my back

.

Here It comes

Standard

Enjoy the visual art work as well

*

here it comes

the first poem of the year

right as the sun

hides low

behind the houses’ roofs

darkness

falls as a wet blanket

piercing

through my winter coat

a soft sound

cracking

on the frozen grass little

cautious

steps as it advances

On Tenderness – Dec.2021

Standard

*

where did my soul go

she’s hurt and offended

she’s hiding from me

from others I will go now

looking for her I will

walk long step after step

until the blood pumps

until the heart awakens

until my legs hurt no more

until I could hear my soul’s

voice calling me out to be

taken softly in my arms

.

Poems Come

Standard

*
when you honor
three layers of mountains

brown beige and purple
straight ahead of you

against a bright blue drape
not noticing the golf ball

poems come floating
the crystal breeze

This poem is part of the collection California Notebooks 02 written in Indian Wells, California.

To The End

Standard

*
we all walk
bundled up on
winter days
but the dogs

jump for joy

the old man
will not sit by
his fire he takes
himself out

slowly stretching
his steps next
to the lines
of poplars

he will walk to
the end not
a thought
of surrender
