The Moment

The atmosphere falls
Suddenly still around me
Soft cotton silence

Heartaches and holly berries
Blood-red bows and stars of blue
Waning rays and winds of change
Gift-wrapping dreams in hues of you

A few degrees
Makes all the difference
In temperature or math
To architect and traveler
Detailed attention
Squares the path

Still Mountain

•November 19, 2017 • 1 Comment

I am mountain
Tunneled through
And standing
All manner of mobile
Automatic machines
Using and viewing fast
My stony middle
Just to travel
A to B without
The timely struggle
Of knowing my nature
Risky wild
And teaching
I remember history’s days
Of rope and boot
And photo shoot
Humans finding foothold
Me providing peak
My pieces picked
For summit’s peace
Tandem plateau and travel
Those days are gone
Time has ticked on
I am still mountain
Tunneled through
And waiting

I am no beauty
Sleeping but a wild thing clipped
And darkly waking

A Lifetime

The blue sky above begs, “forever”
My body below cries, “a moment”
Between us we meet at this lifetime
Neither sure what we leave in the going



Off The Couch

I have discovered
Dogs have bested Freud
For they deflty nod
And slightly smile
And sometimes meet your eye
As you spill your soul
Find cures your own
While walking by their side
