day ends
day ends
in steady rain
in the dark-
only lights I see
are in my dream

seeing your face
seeing your face
in the clouds above me
sliding east-
each word of the poem
floats up to meet them

how do you do it
how do you do it,
those of you who read
the bad news?
turning off the radio
and watching the stars...

getting used to sounds
getting used to sounds
on my hilltop balcony-
unknown children
welcome spring with the birds
bringing me forgotten smiles

spring sunset
spring sunset
leaves me for the first time
in warm air
and loud crickets-
thinking of our first kiss

she starts her day
she starts her day
by putting on makeup
and perfume-
all that I notice, though,
is her natural beauty

in the mirror
in the mirror
I see my face this morning-
you smile at me,
but don't you see what
years have done to me?

dead leaves

dead leaves
float down the flooded river
by the side walk-
one way or another
you come back to my mind..

with you gone
with you gone
I'm forced to focus
on myself-
listening to the rain
land on the ground

brings me thoughts of things
I've never seen
knowing deep down
I'll never see them

writing a letter
writing a letter
on paper, with a pen,
finding that
some things need time
before they are read

after a few, I throw them
into the trash can

you look at me
you look at me
through a stranger's eyes
in a strange town-
giving away my soul
with each book I sign

followed by a prelude

a life moves on
