Beauty Lingering

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

In Sickness – Three Steps

Standard

*

1.

winter came early

this year to me

and to so many

others counting

the dead ones

holding tight

to a thin opening

of breath whistling

almost in an out my

house old all of a sudden

2.

I do repeat I love you

to my self five times

at day more really

because it helps

my lungs relax

I feel larger

than life

simply

saying

to myself

I do love you

hold on tightly

3.

all shall pass one day

not today maybe

please not

today

Tomorrow I Won’t Forget

Standard

*

I move a strand of hair

away

from my face hanging there

for too long

as I didn’t want to remove

you when

I found too many bottles

empty

outside in the trash cans your words

lies

crawling up obscuring my

mind

as my heart knew nothing

but love

then

.

Tomorrow is International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women and I won’t forget my yesterday.

A Different Point Of View

Standard

*

I may indulge

in upside down

visions a different

point of

view

.

giving you pictures

of reflections

shadows clouds

and waters

.

all fleeting

all temporarily

true

Come With Me

Standard

Come with me today to my poetry reading in the Coachella Valley in California!

It will take you only 3’09” to be with me and virtually fly there as I introduce you to my poems.

The book I’m reading from, California Notebooks 01 was written there. I wanted to give back to the desert, with this reading, the inspiration it bestowed on me.

This book is dedicated

to those souls whose flesh is too tight

to those whose dreams are real and reality seems

to be a dream

In Spite Of Me

Standard

*

when my words
surfacing out of
poetry define
who am I
I cry

I also
rejoice and
stand still as
if suspended
all at the same
exact

time holding
that tiny particle
of truth inside me
that shining in spite
of me

.

.

Removed

Standard
*
under or above
removed from usual
grounds from valleys
to enter quieter realms
stillness and marvel
to be marginal
observing whether
with fish or birds
a new silence
lingering in
eternity

This poem is part of the collection Crossing Riviera.

By the way, in case you wish to give me some feedback based on your experience or instruction, this new Blocks Editor DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! Not sure it works for poems… even the Schedule seems more lengthy and complicated and, sorry for the past few weeks, missing the usual posting time and dates – I was experimenting with the Block Editor! Arrgh…

Superlatives

Standard

*

the wildest

is at the bottom

of peace

.

the loneliest

is found among

a crowd

.

the kindest

is yourself forgiving

after rage

Last week no poems were ever published due to the gravity of George Floyd’s killing and in observance and solidarity of Black Tuesday and Black Lives Matter.

Solitude Serves Me Well

Standard

*

before is the bird’s
song and the occasional
car passing by

then the refrigerator
freezing while shaking
the hot water boiler

or an airplane
far away the mailman
comes dropping

volumes of papers
we need to lift glance
at a minute then dispose

that’s how days roll
away how solitude
serves me well

.

This poem is from the California Notebook collection, available in paper book and digital format.

The Look My Soul Has

Standard

*
in between loving cats
and feeding elders
roaming paths

it was the caressing
with my eyes of the olive
trees barks twisted by

the winds and the lack
of water – is that the look
my soul has – she had no

idea life was business
to attend same the church
and the cats and the elderly
