#480. ripples

September 15, 2011

my life robbed me of my life
and gave it all back to me

in the river are all the rivers
suns and moons 
and all the days the nights
gleam shadow wed the dark light

honey you are all my rivers 
and all my wife
sailing up the wide wide stream 
boat dream knife

#425. dream mother

forgiven
my history
with each day
newly responsible
for each choice made
i make those choices
forgiving each day
is a new history
a responsiblity
my choice

look back
fall forward
present is sweet
life overwhelms pain
the world is not you or me
but joyous us and the golden hound

the day is
and the night also

the ancient
timeless whirlpool
tossing me
an old coca cola can
in an empty
six train car between canal
and spring
before summer and fall leads to winter

#371. more sun

August 31, 2010

pale day
in the hot sun
its the way living
people fade that bring
out the ancient forgotten
restless shades of gone new york

#366. summer chill

August 26, 2010

and now the season
begins to fade
the leaves
meditate
upon
hue
and i
watch
the children
playing by sunny
shores not believing
in the school bell’s peal

#312. mosquitos

July 3, 2010

mosquitos

and more mosquitos
the lake reflecting the echoes
of good amateur fireworks bang
the beautiful eve before the fourth
i will feel a few stings and then go home

#307. time to know

June 28, 2010

carefully
with friends
the sun shines
but the clouds come
and the rain is a relief
leading everyone home
with the red sun set
the evening chill
brings back
the joy

#298. solstice

June 19, 2010

sun on skin today
midsummers eve
gold glint in yr eyes
midsummers night
my lover has me
full sun tomorrow
midsummers day
lets go out and play
autumn is coming

surface
tension punctured
drops ripples and gone
time uncounted
music ensphered
water engaged
by pebble rock
and stone

turn your face
up towards the clouds
feel the new rain
ancient oceans
refreshed
