Nowhere

I,
Running 
From here                                                                 to there
But getting nowhere.

United Nations Plaza

Temperature dip
urban leaves turned
Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market
in San Francisco today.

Buried Treasure

Castle in the sand

indicates the location

A buried treasure

where once we sat and sunbathed

Lost to a watery grave

Walls

when the walls around us close,
we will sit around our meager light
until it burns into the dirt floor
and becomes a memory

Short Grave poem by Andrew Crisci| Details |

REMEMBERING THEM IS DEEP SORROW

Remembering them   
is deep sorrow piercing the  
inconsolable 
heart that must weep to release 
what the flesh can't overcome.

Halloween Moon

The Celtics called it "Samhain",
The day the Dead are seen.
The phases change their faces,
Like the moon on Halloween.

Grieve, Mimosa tree

Grieve, mimosa tree

Silky pink petals, a wreath

Create canopy

Guard love one, at peace, beneath

Your presence shall ever haunt

Emotional Abuse

If you draw your child away from normal play, activities and behaviour 
By forcing them to lie about their true desires, 
Then where’s the love?

The Cloudiest Day

I didn't like losing you
And my tears cried the truth
With rain that came
On the cloudiest day
Like heaven was crying too
