Berth of a Lifetime (from the Time Capsule)

from looking up
within the shade
of my forebrethren

to casting my own shadow
upon green flesh
breaking ground

till leafless gray
groom’d my breathless limbs
for others to shelter

for inquiring minds to nourish
at my newest splendor
I am at home

Boarding Passes

Taking some time off to fly back east.  First, to finally perform a long-awaited veteran’s memorial service for my brother-in-law.  Then to get together with family and friends– some of whom  (because of our distant addresses) we’ve kept in touch with but haven’t seen in years.  Be safe, fellow bloggers.  And have a wonderful summer.   Peace.

Isolation

our eyes once
held hands
your footsteps
sunken into mine
o’er
the cold warmth
the beauty
the wonders
of winter’s boulevard

now all
by your absence
be a blur
striking me
colorblind
in all spectra
as my mind
trips
into frozen thought

we are not here

we are
not

Ambush

of her be aware

hawk who espies everything

if you snooze you lose

(This happens– usually just outside my front door– about 4 times a year.  It takes a few days for the local birds to resume their activities around the hanging feeder and the ground level water dish.)

Any side of the Sun

palms of leaves
tir’d and slipping
from the wood
onto the bed of marl

cultivating
dreams of rainbow petals

yesteryear’s keepsake to bear
of cloudless blues

the fruits to inspire
of their own dreams
and bless tomorrow’s trees
with laughter
