So Simple, It's Alarming

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Along the Path


Escorted by
a brilliant blue sky
and the slightest of breezes-

(in the simplest of images
and rhythms)-

A cardinal,
a bluejay, dragonflies,
and spiderwebs-

Rehearsal for what emerges

As another ½ pound
equivocates-

So here’s
my prescription:

Read,
write, walk

Poem in Late Light


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Magical Wood


These trees are talkers-
Oaks and gnarled pines are
dappled shades wearing sleeveless
garments of emerald and orange

Rackham knew, when
branches reach from bough
to bower, men may emerge,
or women- appearing in faith
to husband each other-

Bark may alter,
leaves may fall, limbs
may sever- But the
reach remains
