Across the Prairie
Winds blow, soft, insistent
knotting my hair, tugging my clothes
begging me to run, swift
and surefooted as the antelope.

Rain falls, tumbling down the
hillside, filling the creek
until its swollen currents roar
by, banks overflowing.

Feet pound the earth, blindly
seeking solid footing, pushing
past the pain, pressing...Read More

My father, Joseph

A veteran of World War Two

though the years, surefooted 

a guide 
served 2 terms
got out ended up in Omaha
in a moment of loss 
in a storm 
found...Read More

If I Walk A Path With You
If I walk a path with you
     I will be surefooted
And I will leave footprints
So that we may know
      How far we’ve come
And remember where we’ve been

And as I walk a...Read More

EVENING
EVENING



Evening falls and wings are folded
Darkness clothes the weary sky
Birdsong awaits the daybreak
And rest descends on all

The battering hammer of the smithy
The barking blade of the lumberyard
Have led their surefooted dance
Of sparks and spelks in ugly reel

Silent, and uncertain now,...Read More

Unused hands
This Satanophobia makes me fear more
A jobless framework like a rust armour
From the arsenal of an old strong warlord
Surefooted to cut down a long strong rod.

Its an aframomum melegueta
Which its pungency hurts than a cutter.
Idleness; a caustic abstract worker
Bow in...Read More

The Vow
No matter how deep the sadness or wide the pain,
I vow to live for a brighter day will come again.

No matter how many mistakes I’ve made in the past,
I vow to live and in the future avoid them, surefooted and...Read More

The Dinosaur
Hide,
Scorched like gauze
Moving slowely and surefooted

A path no longer blazed yet
Bridges behind still burn

An opening,
A thousand eyes turn to stare
Fruitless in its search,
Faces no longer there

Disgruntled and aged
Grown shorter in its decline

The Dinosaur walks out of the 
forest,
Onto the edge...Read More

Silent Fit of Rage
Silent Fit of Rage

In a silent fit of rage, she sat still and soundless
Evaluating each of her decisions and all that surrounds it

Not a bit shaken or even surprised, to say the least
She is all too familiar with betrayal and...Read More

To My Man
 
  My man from youth grew
  Your life was full of superiority;
  You dazzled and demarcated, 
  Who does not belong must be sacrifice,
  And laughter were the mystery of your horror tales,

Delicate (EK, a casuality of Flankers)
Surefooted, sure fisted,razor tough
If I should fight that war again
I would want one for the going rough
Like yourself,
Fair and fractured 
When the friendship slough
No claim to be a paragon of anything
Just an average man in your own eyes
While I hoisted...Read More

Challe
Virgen de Guadalupe
scrape her roses from the floor
The lighted path shimmers
in the mountains
as we walk like goats
surefooted and into high
places
Lofty dreams encompass
the transitions
and splendor shakes a tail feather
peacocked into cries for 
water, light and love
Challe in the toilet stall
Hands clenched,...Read More

In Your Absence
