all those years
the fall wind through an open window
the white hood
your closed eyes silent staring at mine
which are yours

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

laying awake
with my life
ready to go

with the shades
of new york
flickering

black and white
almost
overwhelming

the traffic
and people
but all silent

as time
is terrible
and sweet

as the sharing
of words
often is

#209. dreamside search

March 22, 2010

the side
of me
that is sight
unseen
scours my dreams
for clues
to the side
of me
that always
cleans
the side of me
no one
should ever see
but always
seems
to lead

when you dream in black and white
color can be difficult
to wake up to

you dream such soulful dreams
i’m glad that you share them with me
they explode
all my black and white themes
turning them orange
purple
and green.

#133. Gratitude

What errand brings
that huddled form out in the great white
blizzard?
Not my joy
else he’d be striding
yelling
arms flying
snow feeling.

What Light controls my eyes?
