Eyes Wide Open

Standard

*

.
we are here
softly abandoned

.
glaring at the shadow of
an airplane on the ground

.
one of those luminous day
where every detail is out

.
for count and thanksgiving
following a time dark as

.
the night upon which we
both struggled with

.
eyes wide open to
no avail in fear

.

On Writing

Standard

*

I load on beauty
between silences
those of plants and
lack of rain

these shivering
when reefers come
are not gossip or loud
news they are stanzas

needing spaces
in between needing
solid whites an invisible
bench to sit on

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

.

A Hint of Poetry for the New Year

Standard

Happy New Year, Happy New Life!

*

I wish no one
to die without a hint
of poetry

a hue of love
compassion or
passion

I wish you
all the urge to cross
over this

threshold
while in your home
a nice skin

seeking a touch
from heaven to come

Love is Reverence

Standard

*

I have worn shoes
covered with trails

dust sticking loud
louder than my long

path of silence I
have asked to see

the way I could tread
barefoot as in a dream

where roads aren’t
hard where people

say without speaking
love is reverence

.

The Birds Trills

Standard

*

just before
I breathed in I was
breathing out

I run to this
place to be with you
you seem aloof

to life or to give
anything out afraid
even to receive

I play with the birds
trills as people rush
home from work
