I Notice

Standard

*
I notice the silence

.

not anymore the chirping
or the chatter of the wind

.

I notice the hummingbird
trying stillness by furious

.

flapping I stop engaging
myself I let go of my eyes

.

frantic grasping of letters
on a page putting the book

.

down where it was letting
my head as beheaded

.

falling too

.

.

Poem from the bilingual book California Notebook available for you also online.

The Revelation Of Presence

Standard

*

I quiver as the sun
comes back out
from behind the trees

.

I remember being
fifteen drenched in
too many questions

.

boiling over in the
heat of the sunshine
evaporating upward

.

leaving

.

room for silence
to fill each single
gap each crevice

.

.

The Sea From Afar

Standard

*

what I miss
is the time moving
slowly creating a still
silence inside

.

watching the clouds
surf slowly and the grass
grow tall when the rain
is done

.

walking uphill
seeing the sea from
afar holding its smell
on my skin

.

my time immersed
in beauty my time
my days my habits
I hold nothing

.

.

This poem is from the collection California Notebooks 01 available on Amazon if you are interested in purchasing your own copy for your own library shelves.

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

.
