A River Pouring from California Notebooks

Standard

*
a river pouring
you are not rushing

.
to me poetry flows
out is hard to contain

.
I’ve no hands for that use
I’ve new eyes to embrace

.
strong legs clasped around
it’s an odd place wonderful

.
to be tell me what is
new today with you

.

Dreaming

Standard

*

was dreaming of

sunny awakenings

sweet cuddling and

words few – tight together

was getting out to say

.

good morning – gratitude

will not fail me

a smile in spite

of everything

.

I will hold

happiness

between

my hands

.

.

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 Right Place

Standard

*

you just know

when you are in

the right place

your soul stretches

out and flies you follow

it somehow with words

and without

This poem is at page 51 of the bilingual poetry book California Notebooks 02

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

.
