Calm

he pounds the asphalt
I walk the woods
his hand chilled refutes You
my fingers weave warm ‘tween yours
his soul listens deaf to You
my heart sings full of You
he is thunder
I am rain

Quotidian

they have passed here
every morn lo thirty years
in the winter each breath
unfurls a flag of moistened mist
in the summer flapping loose their
ragged shorts and thin worn slippers
nary give a nod a neighbor for
better friends there attached by leashes
them the same never mindful of the season

Outdated

clothed in darkness

slippers stead of sandals

the dew yet wet upon the lawn

gray hair rustles without her comb

paces direct ahead save

an alerting gaze askance a chance

another may she encounter

back home

seeing none save her paper awaits

to find the news of Yesterday

               ~ ~ ~

Prescriptions

her story bare begun

quick tangled in the telling

twisted down the road

tired ‘ere her finish
