2020-11-15 – Graveyard Grey

i saw a bouquet of
weathered
flowers

toppled by
your

headstone, the
wind must
have

thrown another
after hours
tantrum

++++

though, true i
don’t know
you

i get how much
little things
mean
to..

ones missing those
who can no longer
be caressed
or seen,

so i return your
flowers to
their

rightful
place,

++++

where dew kissed
petals blush the
graveyard
grey.

2020-11-11 – Palms to Sky

there’s a breach
in quilted
sky

open to each
restless
lens,

unscratched, each
earth born
star..

glowing well-
unscarred..

gazes of longing,
rolling upward
reaching
for

fresh scenery
through the
smudgy
dark.

++++

i raise my palms
to heaven and
surrender
to the
light

in crowded
city park.

..staring, pointing, gathered around.. there’s sharks in the sandbox, now don’t you look down.

2020-11-09 – Lower Glow

i’m lit lantern on
a string of
many..

glown in tandem, as
yard’s salvation
from dark
times..

++++

and when i grow
dim, the others
brighten..

without fumble
or failure,

and i’ll offer same-
come their
time
to..

glow a little
paler.

2020-10-30 Silver Blue Light

an erratic blink
cast over the
swell..

as chorus of waves
clash their
cymbals

into first row
of rocks

to lend a glance
their way,

i’ll just beam my
silver blue
light

like a lazer through
the small
talk,

to help glow the
watery way
home..

for all night ships
hypothermic
and alone.

2020-10-03- Growing a Family

feel a crisp breeze’s
wisps of kindness
rustle as it
leaves,

this frostbit clearing’s
knot of sickly
old trees,

guide all bastard brothers
and sullen sisters
into solidarity
stripped the
rivalry,

redefining and refining
what it means to
be one as
family.

2020-09-11 – Whole New World

coral ribbons bind a
formless bliss

sea’s lone shell whispers the
words that bridge
me to her
world,

where dove flag
still ripples,

only to unravel ‘fore the
eyes of mouth
stitched
girls,

but nothing
tickles,

++++

night blisters blue and sky’s
stars unglue as we
dream a whole,
new world.
