spring weeds wilt
spring weeds wilt
in the ninety-four degrees-
June begins

Bach softly
Bach softly
ends the day for me-
no more need of words

some things
some things
are good to not know,
I lie to myself

aimlessly driving

down wet roads, looking
for the sun

afternoon rain
afternoon rain
hammering on roofs
and trees-
children run wet,
smiling
.
from Tangled in Wisteria

as I drive in the rain-
no destination

while pondering
while pondering
the meaning of life, I see
a firefly,
softly telling the answer-
if only I understood...
.
(thanks, Lore' Chalfant)

cutting it
cutting it,
a rose that bloomed today,
to give to you
on this day, your birthday-
at the cemetery

a scrap of paper
a scrap of paper
on which I had written
a poem flies away
in the sudden wind,
followed by my memory

sunset silence

a long day sails away
over the west hills

weeks of rain
weeks of rain
ends, re-introducing us
to the sun
but the river's still high-
some things take longer to leave

rising high,
the water, this morning
carrying
my youth, slowly,
to someone else

yet another
yet another
starless night-
cicadas scream,
but don't they know
I can't help them?

my mood changes
my mood changes
as a voice comes from miles
and miles away-
wet wind continues,
but not quite so cold now
.
(There, Wanda Mom. Hope it makes sense. It was so nice to get to talk to you.)

watching a group
watching a group
of teenagers, lined up
for pictures
on their prom night-
wish I were... glad I'm not

out of nowhere
out of nowhere,
your face appears in the sky
along with lightning,
but your name- lost forever,
along with your letters...

so many words
so many words
washed away by days
of rain-
hoping to find more
on the dusty moon

she sleeps
she sleeps
beside me tonight,
at least tonight-
missing her most
before she leaves

rain drops bounce in pools
rain drops bounce in pools,
for one last desperate time,
attempting
to get my attention-
reading obituaries
