in the sunlight
in the sunlight,
reading forgotten letters-
is the warmth
from my memories
or is it just from the sky?

staring at saturn
staring at saturn
with a pen in my hand-
reaching beyond
my mortal limitation
with ink on paper

dressing up at dawn
dressing at dawn
with new expensive clothes
and old faded shoes-
the same conversation
each morning on the phone

how would you see me
how would you see me
after many years apart?
listening
to newborn birds
in an old oak tree

cloudy humid night
cloudy humid night
has fallen into my mind,
slowing my thoughts-
looking at a long list
of things I should have done

sleeping bags
My older daughter is having a sleep over for her 7th birthday. All together there are 10 girls here. Most of them are from my school, so I'm known as Mr. Lockhart. :)
My wife is staying out with them in the other half of the house. I'm getting ready to crawl up the steps to my bed and call it a day. I'll do my visiting tomorrow....

sleeping bags
squirm on the floor like worms-
giggling

the more I try
the more I try,
the least my mind follows-
tangled deeply
in multicolor clouds,
floating into space

I know so much
"I know so much
about you," she says-
I smile and nod,
knowing that most of me
will never be seen

cicada songs
The storms are gone now. A few blocks down from me I see house after house with broken windows. Three schools here are damaged, too. what's needed the most is a night of good sleep....

feeling alive
as I stand in the storm
hearing the siren-
watching leaves slap themselves
against the screen

so many times I forget

forced to hear him
forced to hear him,
the woodpecker hammering
at the oak,
even though I can't see him-
I'll never forget your face
