New Landscapes

Standard

*

I left the valley
green and humid
where wind was but

a rare guest for
the coast to be blown
away by crosswinds

sunlight and waves running
around with my wet suit
catching waves long

trips to the unknown
marine depths now I find
myself in the desert away

from things experienced
before synced in with my
passion for the new

landscapes of the spirit

Indian Wells, 2015

Standard

*

from among the metal bars
escape the road runners
away from the golf fields

me wishing to follow the
band of elderly retiree
who drive further into

the desert to sit time
at hand to watch the
migratory birds being

stopped by no borders
unlimited beauty

California Notebooks, Mornings, 2014

Standard

*
early mornings awakenings
one step after another

a habits that sets
me on the way

who do I meet
on my path

if not wounded
travellers

a shy roadrunner
without a claw

a shiny large crow
with a broken wing

and then there’s me
mending my dreams

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
