I Mentioned You To My Memory

December 19, 2014 I mentioned you to my memory, Cascades of flame and soft silks came to mind, I mentioned you to my heart, A rowboat made of diamond, a paddle of mother-of-pearl and an anchor larger than the Milky Way parked itself outdoors, I mentioned you to my vision, And a turquoise world, made […]

Under The Snow

November 5, 2014 Under the snow old fingerprints grow new and slip away incognito, like a moth finished after laying her eggs at night, lifts off, cotton- caressing the air with her portrait framed in silence and bulbous intricacies, Envisioning a nest of vulture fledglings roaming the skies with their eyes, fueled by the deceased, […]

Wrapped In Lamplight

November 3, 2014 Not the calm before the storm, Not the calm after the storm, Only the calm that welcomes the storm, Itself, before weather was born, The designer of turtle shells and wolf eyes, The cabinetmaker for hermit crabs and honeybees, Deeply now, Time is passing, yet nothing stands so still as to not […]

Its Wings Are Coming

November 1, 2014 The clouds are the dreams of mountains. A white caterpillar inches across a Black hole unflinchingly, Its wings are coming. You, I, They and Those-to-come, Silken addresses superimposed across nighttime meadows as spiderless webs, bejeweled with dew droplets, our evaporating eye sights looking for the music of dawn and the illuminated manuscripts […]

Staying In Love With You

October 31, 2014 I see you all the time, Not because you’re dreaming me constantly or on the path to awakening, no, I see you all the time because I choose to look at you and you alone, I’ve never met you, yet I miss you, You’re a complete stranger to me, yet I have […]

Turkey Vulture

August 21, 2014 I’m remembering or Remembering is hosting me in its heart, This realm of circular orbits and quiet omissions of being able to walk away, just like that, like a four-leaf-clover appearing in the dark, amongst a field of three-leafed ones, not singing or glowing, not lost or found, neither lucky or unlucky, […]

A Turtle In The Shade

October 17/18, 2013 A turtle in the shade, A shadow looking like a turtle in the shade, Shadows looking into the shade at the turtle eating a strawberry near Midnight, Midnight stopping the clock to paint the rapids white, An old man in the park parked and admiring his friend’s chess maneuver, King to Pawn, […]

Forgiveness’s Quiet Unclothing, Quiet Moth and Trepidation’s Steady Chisel

August 7/8, 2014 Forgiveness’s quiet unclothing of Decadence, The shield made out of thin air, forged air, Tempered and sharpened air. ________ Quiet moth kissing the bright light, Quiet call to let go, Quiet paw prints on a moss path, Quiet avalanche love-calling the rescue of Saint Bernard. ___________ Trepidation’s steady chisel against the granite […]

There Were Footprints In The Snow

July 28, 2014 There were footprints in the snow leading up to the Lover standing at Love’s door, The Lover knocked and knocked, turned the knob, locked, no answer, The wind roared, the sleet rained, a wolf howled a long way off and the last leaves of Autumn fell to the earth, filling the Lover’s […]

The Rising Sun

July 6, 2014 The rising sun, the echoes fading from the mouth of the wishing well, the prayer-hands clapping, the wave cresting near the horizon-line’s leap into nothingness and the blue of a robin’s egg shinning through the depth of the Dark Forest, ablaze with awe, Then a tremble and a crack, a separation and […]
