Mornings From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
some mornings
I don’t perform well

in spite of the flowers
the citrus trees

the sun rising

greeting me
on my walk

.

I seem to carry
the European gloom

draped inside
my sprinted limbs

as some unshakable
bad dreams

.

I find myself
observing

the hand of the others
greeting me on meeting

some reaching out
some limp

.

others waving in the wind
or just matter of fact

some from Mexican workers
non-hibernating Canadians

plus white residents on
tiny wheels on their way

to the better life

Being from The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
some times I miss
being the shore

constantly smoothed
by the froth caressed

by the whispering
waves to find myself

in the soft morning light
cleaned up reordered

from all the creases
of worrisome days

California Notebooks, Mornings, 2014

Standard

*
early morning
every one works

to make the land
more beautiful

sprinklers sing
water jumping

up in the air
birds grooming

their songs
elderly women

with rolls walking
their poodles

old pick up trucks
filled with new

flowers to plant
slowly driving by
