are they really
are they really
different from each other,
snowflakes,
landing on a newspaper,
life and death on one page
.
from Tangled in Wisteria

on the fence-

my joints moan
my joints moan
with each painful step-
cold front
.
(The temperature has dropped 40 degrees in the last 24 hours - and still dropping.)

my love-affair
my love-affair
with spring, rekindled
by a warm sunset-
even though it's not time,
she promises tomorrow..

losing their touch
losing their touch,
my cold, cracked fingers
this winter night-
shivering as I hear
the riverboat

scratching a note
scratching a note
to you on the cold clay ground
with a nail-
as if you could see,
as if you would care

watching my breath float,
reminding me
the cruelty, the beauty,
the reality of life

where are they
where are they,
the memories I've lost?
will I find them,
or will I send them more,
leaving me empty?

this late afternoon
as in the east
the moon glows

raindrops fall
raindrops fall
on the roof at midnight,
taking my mind
off of my worries,
leaving it empty- for now..

pictures still hanging
in the old house-
refusing to accept
the change of time

the long forgotten mural
on a concrete wall-
I love, though, her strength
beneath the beauty

computer
I'm having some problems with my computer and I'm not able to use it. It's running a test now, but who knows how long it will run (it's been running for hours!)
I'm doing this through my cell-phone and my thumbs are killing me! :) I'm bored, too, so I hope it finishes soon.......

since I've seen you
since I've seen you,
we've both been so many times
around the sun-
does it seem as long to you
as it does to me?

yet silent, the lightning

bringing back the tune

spill down hills far away,
stretching toward me
but not close enough to touch,
much like your face
