    black dog
    invisible
    slinks through a moonless night
    hugging close to fence lines and homes
    silent

    Silent
    snow falls straight down,
    encasing me in a
    soft, white cocoon. Motionless,
    I wait.

    clock is right twice
    unlike my lazy cat.
    eats, watches tv, sleeps, and purrs:
    meow

    Meow,
    meow, meow,
    meow, meow, meow,
    meow, meow, meow, meow.
    Enough!

    Enough—
    The dry season
    ended. After praying
    for clouds and rain all summer long,
    they’re now here... be careful what you.
    wish for.

    Wish for
    what you can hold,
    even for a moment;
    absorb its beauty while you have
    the chance.

    the chance
    has gone. muscles
    worn. lying on bed, day
    seems year. friends in graves but some lost
    to pride.

    To pride
    congratulate
    glorious, modesty,
    cavalier's humane dignity,
    courage

    Courage
    to winter here
    wanes as the snow deepens.
    Two days’ worth on my path waits for
    Monday.

    Hiking
    brings me back here.
    This stand of old growth oaks
    greets their wandering friend with arms
    outstretched.

    the cat's limbs are
    'bout to fall down the cliff
    at last, she delivers the kits
    climbs up

    the afternoon,
    moon replaces the sun
    blanket of mist covers the hills
    like quilt

    like quilt
    breeze hugged the lake.
    fishes jiggled their fins.
    shining scales made sparkles. the lips
    gave pouts.

    Gave pouts
    Behind blonde curls
    The girl who wants it all
    A longing she'll never outgrow
    Her crutch.

    Her crutch
    was excuses
    she called her life's story.
    Her former friends called it slander.
    Liar.

    Liar,
    whispers the breeze.
    Rose petals in your path
    cannot hide the soil nor your stained
    footprints.




    I'm really a happy person, honest.

    footprints
    of dinosaurs.
    shadows of pterodac's.
    huge leaves, giant whales. the earth's green
    again.
    in caves

    In caves
    beyond your breath,
    sinking Altimira
    suffocates and dies for her art--
    Rock sand.

    Rock, sand,
    fragmented shell -
    the shore gleams black, birdless,
    as sharp suits debate the cost of
    silence

    (PS. Hi guys! Missed you all)

    Silence
    inhabits the
    O.T. as the doc
    closes the cut. Staff
    celebrates the success. Patient
    survives.

    When my eldest daughter was very small she would often come in from the garden with a large bundle of spring crocuses, tulips, or daffodils; all of which are single bloomers. For whatever reason, I could never get her to pick dandelions in summer.

    Survives
    the winter snow.
    Endures frosty spring nights—
    to be snatched in full bloom by my
    daughter.

    I look
    out on the lake.
    Spring brings anxious men in
    boats— winter’s serene quiet now
    broken.
