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

.

Unpublished 2021

Standard

*

sun rays

powerless

reflect away

from the frozen

skin of the small pond

.

there no duck is

allowed to swim in days

like these slivers of ice

compacted together

a strange collage

.

reminiscent of abstract art

fish swimming below unseen

.

Firecrest

Standard

*

why not marvel

at the thin long beak

of the firecrest

.

or cry tears realizing

such songs

came from a thumb

size chest

.

he fit the mouth

of my cat

so little it was this

bundle of joy

.

covering the sky

among trees

with his wings

soft in my palm now

.

Summer Poems – Mirrors

Standard

*
summer comes
with invisible mirrors
on which each one stares
poses and eventually
struts away

indifferent are the spaces

on which people pause
I look up at the abundance
of details I look at them
and turn my eyes to
the parching fields
