Stillness From The California Notebooks, 2015

Standard

*
it’s the ticking
away all the minutes
collected as seeds planted

in rows

all the words kept
in some black holes
where we’ll eventually end

up too
where the horizon is
brighter and dawn thinner

Poetry From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
I pick up words
as small daisies
on a spring field

careful to hold them
in small bunches
never as beautiful

as when first spotted
a memory of wonder
blushing as they close

around their meaning
covering the heart
shy of a truth near

enough – our dull spirits
remembering only a note
or two

California Notebooks, Dec. 2013

Standard

*

.

could poetry be

a way to dig down

and out to listen

 .

to silence interpreting

clanging sounds

to separate words

 .

suddenly come

alive in the arms

of your mind

 .

ready to be

grasped and placed

tiding up logic

 .

a string of letters

a hum of sounds

aligned with soul

The London Hours, 2012

Standard

*
I could hardly believe
the frozen mid tone
that blanked me
out
.
I recall stares as nails
pushing me back
hands hesitant
once
.
It was steps in the night
words over a phone
run fast come
now
.
You state foolishness
pinning down
the wind
still.

The London Hours, 2012

Standard

*
You were
.
sticking
.
close
.
enough
for me not to
desire
.
distance
.
as we now
.
count too many
.
steps dividing
clocks and dates
calendars
.
have no
more pages
us no more
.
words to tell
as it was
habit.
