Sitting on the porch
listening to a robin
singing from afar
***
daynight--
moonshadows
washed in
winter starlight
***
brushed by barren boughs
september leaves painted in
the blush afterglow
***
listen--
can you hear the
flowers laughing?
***
i could sit for hours
chatting with the trees about
how the stars once ruled
***
a falling snowstar:
another, then another--
I wish for flowers
***
again
--the trees turn to black
again
--no swallowsong to hear
***
cloudkisses on a
Tulip-freckled cheek
petals smear the grass
***
watching the clouds turn
from pearl white to sullen black
cherry blossoms smile
***
mid-day: I spot a
rainbow smiling from afar--
damn, I need that gold!
***
sleepy meadow. . .
a gentle breeze drops
dandelion snow
***
dew pearls strewn across
a field of verdant spring grass,
glinting at sunrise
***
tumbleweeds looking
for a shady place to rest
a lone mesquite brush
***
crisp leaves rustling in
the breeze down a twilit road--
summer's requiem
***
stars and flowers paint
the sky with their blood
in twilight warfare
***
flock calls echo from
afar searching for someone
to tell knock knock jokes
***
in the miasma
of ash, I see a face--
our mother
