SNOWFLAKIES

Snowflakes float
Whimsically on the wind
	Drift
		Soar
			Fall  
	Gentle merging of 
		Terrestrial elements 
Seeking 
	Cosmic order of
		Patterned perfection
Children frolic with Frosty 
	Making snowmen and 
		Snow angels
Snowflakes melt
	Swept aside by
Busy wipers on
	Sliding cars on
		Slippery roads
With dizzy drivers
	Seeking stars and
		Sparkling moonbeams
On lonely roads
	In lonely lives
		Where snowflakes fall

Catch the Clouds

Catch the Clouds
	As they drift by
The moist mist kissed
	In dream blue high
Catch the clouds in
	The sweet salt snare of
A woman’s womb
	A cozy room
Catch the clouds 
	If you care
Catch the moist seed
	Plant it deep
Bring the moist need
	From its 
		Dreamy sleep

BUFFALO POUND

Eastern dam
	 A vast expanse of
		Captive water
	Long grass and reeds
		Marshy acres where
	Where the dike’s inadequacy	
		Overflowed 

The hoarse call of
	Mating geese
		On flighty wings

Ducks plummeting
	To a watery landing

A gilded Teal	
	A fledgling Heron
		On awkward limbs
	A Meadowlark
		A Whippoorwill 

Sweet breeze caressing 
			Gentle doe
				Knee-deep in swamp
	Gazing intently at

Shadowy rider
	Perched contentedly	on
			Looming horse

High on a distant hill
Near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan 1968

Cupids Arrow

When last we spoke 
	An image came

This latest journey 
	The latest challenge 

That will test
	The strength of 

Our RESOLVE to
	Build upon the love

Begun long ago	
	Now re-inspired

Hesitant at first like the 
	Faltering steps of a foal in spring 

Struggling to stand 
	Kicking up its heels 

Now thundering hoofbeats
	Racing toward an

Ever closer
	 finish line
	
Two hearts then 
	Pierced

By arrows from
	A Cupid’s bow

Souls now merged by
	Love in overflow

Creative Spark

Bright flame to
	Fading ember
 Reservoir of
	Creative joy
Now depleted
	Brings the
Dim
	Dismaying 
Emptiness of
	Effete creativity
Disheartens
	Disenchants
The migrant
Soul of Striving
Artistry
