#432. east river

November 14, 2010

o river i depend on 
your light grey sparkles green 
water running high
under the arched stone bridge
to power my glad 
heart but you keep your depths   
my secret search

#391. soul whisper taffy

September 22, 2010

carefully
sleep comes

dreams with all
their lovely strength
and dangerous power
tantalize the unconcious
mind and stretch deep tendrils

carefully
sleep comes

confined by time
we are liberated by the power
of the moment.

break the ice
on the surface of the water trough.
the goat
is thirsty this morning
and the horses in the barn
don’t want to share.

this snow pea weather
snaps my amygdala
across time

i am wide eyed

staring up through ice
at grey beard me

#103. Confined By Time

December 6, 2009

confined by time
we are liberated by the power
of the moment.

break the ice
on the surface of the water trough.
the goat
is thirsty this morning
and the horses in the barn
don’t want to share.

#5. Mom and Dad

September 1, 2009

The memory of my father
Bending
Returns to me
As i relax
In the palace
Of weariness.

My heart tweaks
Like my mother’s
But no indulgences
No power
Ride.
