this leap day
this leap day,
the one we only see
each four years-
how many have I lived?
how many will I live?

seeing my name
seeingmyname
seeing my name
among many others-
book store
.
I went to Fort Smith and, for the first time, I saw my book at a book store! This was taken from the poetry section at Hastings.
I'm doing a book signing there Saturday night.
(p.s.- look at "Tangled in Wisteria" on Google)

violently

fighting against my thoughts
that keep me
from seeing the world
peacefully

I don't see you
I don't see you
when I look into the crowd
around me,
but I do see you
when I close my eyes

on a discussion
between two young girls
about death-
I miss not knowing

warm today
'warm today
but cold tomorrow'

my mood swings daily
without a warning...

flashing overhead

flashing overhead
with thunder from the west
counting them all,
the nights we talked
until words were gone
.
from Tangled in Wisteria

as always
as always,
you return to my mind
this cold rainy night-
a smile in the darkness,
a gift from the sky

I could reach out and
move the clouds-
do I really want
to know the truth?

it's too late
it's too late,
you're under the ground-
I didn't know,
but that's fitting,
I'd let years go by

the sun and I
the sun and I
ignore winter for a while,
feeling the warmth-
how many more weeks?
how many more days?

I swore I'd never
I swore I'd never-
slipping toward middle age
without a fight,
hearing a young woman
talk about last weekend

no sign of life
on the cold bare limbs
of the trees
leaving me a view
of a beautiful sunset

where are you
where are you,
my breath in the air,
winter companion?
a bird feels the warmth
and sings to the moon

like fractured mirrors,
picking up pieces
