The Wind

As the wind blows against the trees
I listen to the rattling breeze
Leaves go swish along the ground
And the whirly wind goes round
And round.

Become New Again

As the waves continue to crash
The tides still push and pull
The current will not drag me under
I am a new person
I will not let the sadness win.

Vertigo

I’m talked down
by the memory
of her small head
rising and falling
on my chest.

Love

Warmth in my arms.
Admiration and affection.
Feelings lasting forever.
Memories for eternity.
Engraved into my heart.

what happen here
by this horseshoe pond?
the music thuds
is barefoot in middle winter
reckless humility

COLD

Dolly’s time is up:
I hate it when an old dog dies
Snowy Owls have come south
hungry, mobbed by crows
& ravens — it’s minus 20 today.

eject

smudge of wanton justice
yellow sticky notice
stuck to glass storm door
you can see the wind howling
our garbage shots second
