summer left
summer left
without saying goodbye-
waking up
in the cool morning,
my arms holding a pillow

swimming through words
swimming through words
of others, looking for
words of my own

your face (re-run from 2008)
your face
on the curved moon-
mirage
.
(sorry I've been gone, but it has been so busy at the beginning of the school year. hopefully, it will slow down soon.)

secrets
I tell to the moon
at sunrise,
knowing they'll be kept
at least for a day

radio says
radio says
'severe thunderstorm warning'
and the word 'danger'-
laughing as I watch lightning,
thinking of a certain night...

(true story- bad weather today for a while)

nail after nail
nail after nail
I hammer onto my son
my past,
wanting immortality-
he smiles and walks away...

a certain curve
a certain curve
of the clouds from the west-
'our last time'
is something you've given me
so many times...

counting the years
counting the years,
so many have passed away,
smiling-
a rose in a vase
stands alone on the table
.
(today is our 20th wedding anniversary)

the cicadas
the cicadas
continue their drone,
not knowing
there are times
when silence is needed

opening draws and boxes,

in my mind, she is
in my mind, she is
still seventeen, but pictures
say otherwise...
glancing into the mirror,
just to be sure...
