Places From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

It’s the beauty we hold
and carelessly wear around
what we’ll be missing more

I’ve been that route

bumps holes crevices
known to me – if you’ll let me
stop the nonsense and hold
dear what we have

California Notebooks 2014

Standard

*

wishing for one more
soundless day

swimming quietly
at the bottom of
a sea of written words

— squealing and chirping
if any outside

the time held
between night

and day between
sleep and awakening
