signing spat

                                                my stupid comment
                                                silent but tasteless
                                                tick’d her off

                                                her palms and finger’s
                                                kung fu flyers
                                                flailing from her body
                                               hitting me
                                               hurting me
                                               without touching me

                                               later
                                               my penitence
                                               my standing
                                               on a breath of bend’d knee
                                               flutter’d before her eyes

                                              till we both surrender’d
                                              embrac’d
                                              and cultivat’d smiles
                                              on deaf hands

Themis

some might see
should want to see
a Yesterday
as She did today

a pebble lighting
upon a sleeping pond

a ripple wading
to the shores
of reason
of marvelment
of sav’d optimism

songs of fair skies
of fresh faces of love
for her own Tomorrow

Love’s Legacy

have always been our spirits
as fancies my heart?

were then We there
at first season’s weaning
when yawn’d and stretch’d a microstar?

night with day to grace
and serenade glacial clouds
whose joy wept over thalassic plains
and bless’d loftiest peaks with child
from Eden
to her tributaries
to now?

so shall We be
though Time be drown’d
in Her foreverness

thoughts in hand

Us
within a carousel
of swimmers and joggers
of low surf castle builders
of gulls and lost kelp
of sky and sand and ocean
and of all their speeches—
even then
sometimes
it’s just Us

always Today

                               should Tomorrow waylay thee
                               with whispers from my Heart
                               ‘tis but an Echo
                               adrift upon our mystic orb
                               from Night’s other side
                               ne’er to be lost

love’s token

                                      I stop for an instant
                                      to look here—
                                      a thought of you emerges—
                                      the happiness in your face—
                                      your eyes and lips joining hands
                                      and embracing the special moments
                                      that were ours…
                                      and will always be
