Getting There

GETTING THERE

 

I am an onion.
Peel a layer.
I am colder,
Aware
I must be colder
 still.

Remnants

REMNANTS

 

Blue jeans tattered
leash gripped tight twixt arthritic fingers
lemon yellow slippers in day’s noon,
tresses silver, not gold
askew, mutters
seeking yesterday,
Her gait adrift.


Pause.

Takes puppy’s gaze
says her love
clear, deafening.

 

Heart
Pulse
Surge
Thrust
Burst.

 

What will they remember?

 ~

Bottles

BOTTLES

 

Why shape them so?

What is it fills them?

Who is she fills them?

Has she a lover?

 Does he inspire?

  Does she have his faithfulness?

  Is it for him she fills the bottles?

  Is it for him she fills them full?

What’s New?

WHAT’S NEW?

 

Mornings each new dawn

Rising up

Like

Spent lightning.

Resolve

Forsaking distinction

Comes the sunset

And another sunrise.
