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.

Asking You

Standard

*

don’t many of us
in this life get the chance
to be human

.
even if for a brief
moment of vulnerability

.
tenderness entwined in
with love and forgiveness
embracing mistakes

.
ours or others
understanding
there are no podiums

.
but one race
just one step
following
the other

.
one person
looking after another

keeping our necks oiled
to turn around

any given time

.

New Church

Standard

*

this is

my new church

the desert plane

.

where the spirit lives

I shall come and

preach to all

.

the desert gold

bushes sitting quietly

preach the deepest

.

silence on which

they already thrive

.

On Clouds – California Notebooks 01

Standard

*

I’m not knowledgeable
on climatic changes

the way the winds go
on high or low pressure

I didn’t keep my head on books

but clouds those I know

teaching us
how to be in life

the best ones being
those moving fast

giving no resistance
to life happenings

they follow whatever
wind coming their way

you see them glorying

and soon happily gone

busy dancing
life out

no time to pout – others
grow dark and sit dense

giving headaches

to some of us

they build resistance
to any life changes

no escape
the heaviness

they create
will break on us all

.

A Different Point Of View

Standard

*

I may indulge

in upside down

visions a different

point of

view

.

giving you pictures

of reflections

shadows clouds

and waters

.

all fleeting

all temporarily

true

.
