    Life Told in Writing

    Untitled

    every step
    comes with air
    of revelations—
    pulsing
    on the tip
    there is
    a grand stillness
    with the stars

    Sad Leaves

    Outside my window
    I see the melancholy
    drift—
    the sad leaves free
    of not knowing where to go

    Anchored Mistakes

    those eyes—
    harboring in the shadows
    even in a bucket of sun
    you can't escape

    Porch Night Haiku

    I'll love you always
    underneath the angelic dust—
    even after I die

    Porch Morning Haiku

    New dawn splintered
    a wink of enlightenment—
    the Robin is singing

    Lost in a Moment

    Mornings come rushing
    with slammed goodbyes—
    regret and apologes consume
    the hands of the clock

    In the warm afternoon breeze
    a dreaded smile waits—
    remembering how it was
    to once be anxious to see

    The house ages
    through the night
    and creaks the memories
    swept under the rug

    Alone in the distance
    she falls asleep beside me—
    hoping to dream of waking up
    the love anchoring us apart

    I particularly like Sad Leaves and Anchored Mistakes. So much with very little.

    Dark Knight

    the shadow splinters
    —ashes of deception
    and ripples into mirrors
    of stone

    Twelve O'clock

    I'm in a warm confused blanket
    peering at the still—
    swarming thru this blink

    Grand Farewell

    the autumn leaves
    made a bed
    —just for you

    my turn to chase the light

    warm rain of afternoon
    breeze me in—
    your solitude

    Bloom

    when the last
    bloom of silence
    fades
    the cold-rose dusk
    away,
    the petals
    drift
    into a lullaby—
    and rest easy
    under our willow

    Write my Name in Solitude

    Arms folded to the moon
    —in rainy dawn
    What does she say
    To the bird’s sad song of life?

    Write my name in Solitude
    O’ sweet angel above
    In the cold rose dusk
    Where your winds gently blow

    How I wish I could know
    O' how I wish I could know
