#491. december me world

December 1, 2011

december me world
shine and quicken thru the days
the year ends
and begins
gravity’s
yearly dance 
to bring the light back from night

autumn
burning winter
sharpening storms
underneath rose blue
sky and clouds shining
a swift green river down
seawards colors evaporating
rushing away today from tomorrow
the plank still flecked with paint
tosses its journey in time
with the world’s
chrysalis
birth

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

picking
up a red leaf
maple and small
that the crisp wind
brought announcing
softly winter

#406. mainely in my mind

October 16, 2010

its so funny
how crisp autumn
leads to change
returns thought
to creation dreams
of the road

finding the path once more
my boots turn away from home
towards the forests of living trees
the dying many colored leaves and far hills
and the honey golden hound who stops and gazes
back with puzzled tilted head soft eyes saying lets go

#405. autumn terrace report

October 13, 2010

fragment of summer
night stars
over
manhattan
a brief piece of peace

the free joy cries of children
and the barking answers of dogs
with the scent of street vendor barbecue
tickling my nose i lean back and close my eyes
as you reach over and playfully gently tug my beard

#404. every morning

October 12, 2010

casting about
no excuses
must face
my face
mirror
mirror
my face
must face
no excuses
casting about

distortions never lie
dormant my reflection
always seems to cry

#403. what is jam?

October 10, 2010

vision
swiftly comes and goes
falling
fruit ripens on the tree

the days ascend my mind
spins its silvery webs
to trap worlds
within these
words

vision
slowly passes up and down
falling
fruit rots on the silent ground

#365. zeroing in

August 25, 2010

a vast world has opened words
out past time passing
by timeless words
or more
than

words lead past vast
worlds of time
passing
more

#237. terrorized

April 19, 2010

within us in the world we
smother the flame
which is creation
sterilize the earth
which cradles
desecrate the waters
which heal
stifle the air
which animates
poison the wood
which builds
within us in the world

returns destruction
returns self destruction

understanding
is the journey back
