does the moon know
doesthemoonknow
does the moon know
that the year is ending?
reading old letters,
finding so many things
that never change

a poem
a poem
stretches out of me
so it, too,
can warmth its body
in the bright sunlight

a present
a present
from mom I get today,
neatly packed
in a tape-covered box-
layers of love
.
for Wanda

green grass
green grass
in the frozen ground
brings me
a slither of hope-
counting the months...

tear drops fall
tear drops fall
from a blind man's eyes-
winter rain

her beauty leaves
herbeautyleaves
her beauty leaves
me in far away hills
but I smile,
knowing that I'll see her
another day...

reminding me
reminding me
that I'm alive, the wind,
reminding me
how fast time moves-
leaves roll before me

effortlessly, the chimes

my older sister

my older sister,
the river, tells me
her stories
from her past, as I tell
her of my future...

she leaves me
she leaves me
again, day after day,
the sun-
happiness can't be known
without sadness

the mountains
the mountains,
hidden in the clouds, won't tell
me their stories
today, a day where raindrops
add weight to my thoughts

smelling the smoke
smelling the smoke
from a far away chimney-
secretly thinking
the thoughts that I shouldn't,
letting them swirl slowly...

I add to my to-do list-

full moon hides
full moon hides
deep behind the black clouds
after sunset-
I smell your perfume,
but only with my eyes closed...

staring out
staring out
the hospital windows
at the traffic-
pretending to be happy,
fish in the aquarium

swaying palm trees
swaying palm trees
leave us just enough room
for sunlight,
but the alarm then brings
me back to reality....

we try hard
we try hard
to not talk about death
as she stands near us-
through a window I watch
the children play...

laughter and pain
laughter and pain
at the same time, how
can that be?
clinging to what's left
of my youth

again and again
the dog next door barks
at no one-
reading old love letters
in the moon light
