                        Tonight like a child,
                           caring not the time
                                  nor the place.
                         Studying you as only an
                                artist could know.
                          The lines and features
                             of your face.

                          I've painted this picture
                               a thousand times,
                             remembering you,
                                  when we're apart.

Old Shoe Box

                           I'll take our times together,
                             and put them away
                           in a old shoe box.
                            Wrapped in yesterdays newspaper.

                            Brought back when things
                               weight me down.
                            Hidden from prying eyes,
                              and those who may

                             For when the clouds arrive,
                                   and storms brew over the 
                             I'll hide away and open my shoe box,
                               and smile the day away.

                                     As I walk the beach
                                        a seagull
                                      a lone sentinel,
                                      announces my coming.
                                      His shrill cry beckoning,
                                             his comrades to fly.

                                      When I pass,
                                             they will return
                                       as though I'd never passed
                                           that way before.

                                       Covering my tracks with their
                                           thousand little feet.
                                         And again that lone sentinel,
                                          Posted to guard against

Waiting a Long Time

Tucker Carwile

                                   So many years,
                                    always wondering,
                                      if these works are real.

                                    Finding you with
                                          just a click.
                                     A place to post your thoughts.

                                     Reading others,
                                         that have been hiding
                                      as I , 

                                      Thank you poetysoup,
                                            for making my 
                                       feelings come true.

Winter Walks

                                Winter walks,
                                   on summer beaches,
                                 but for you and I.
                                 Marking our steps 
                                        in soft sand,
                                  that soon,
                                 the tide must wash away.

                                  Months from now,
                                     our walks will have been

                                 Beaches crowded with bodies dressed,
                                     in summer styles.
                                   We will have become
                                        last years news.

                           The oceans and the mountains
                                 are my sanctuary.
                            The ocean with its rhythmic
                                pounding of the surf
                              and cool breezes.
                             The mountains with its
                                 solitude of tall trees.

                             Both are clean and pure,
                                when untouched by human hands.
                             These are my friends,
                                 who calm the ravaging storms,
                               that gather in my soul.

                              Whenever I am troubled,
                                   I return to my friends
                                for guidance and direction.

Being Me

                          Something missed,
                                in my younger days.
                           Kissing in the front seat,
                              at the drive-in movies.
                            Holding hands and watching
                               the sea awash the shore.

                             Feeling the warmth
                                   of your body,
                                 beneath the stars.

                             You have taken my life,
                                bringing it meaning.
                              Filling gaps,
                                 taken from books and movies,
                              that have longed to be filled.

                              Thank you for being
                                      my teacher.
                               for you have taught me
                                     the beauty
                                  of being myself.

Store Bought Words

                                    Words can be bought for $2.50,
                                          in any bookstore.

                                     It's not what you say,
                                          but how you say it.

                                      Need you speak,
                                        when you can show me
                                                     well enough.

                             Mornings are meant for me,
                                 quiet times to think,
                              gathering data for the afternoon.

                              Watching the morning sun rise
                                   against the turning sky.
                               Able to recount my past evenings

                                As the morning ages,
                                      the quiet is broken,
                                  by the business of the coming day.
                                 As my thoughts are pushed back.

                                 Until the next mornings sun.

Looking upward '82

                                      I remembered a time in spring
                                         when I glazed upward,
                                      the clouds taking shapes of
                                           trains, elephants, lions and cars.
                                       I could spend hours playing my

                                       Now, when I look up,
                                          those shapes are gone.
                                       In their place, words like cumulus,
                                           cirrus, stratus and cumulonimbus
                                        Somehow I like the old games better.
