Silence

between you and me
and the crashing
of the sea

no sound is heard
but that of seagulls
circling in the sky

drop by drop

silence trickles

lengthening each

moment

before it runs dry

  • Resilience

    I carve a piece of blue sky
    for the dark days ahead

  • Shadows

    ong      shadows

    the afternoon    s t r e t c h e s   us

    on the sidewalks

  • In My Twilight Zone

    Between sunset’s fiery streaks
    slipping into the sea, and
    the rising of the silver moon
    is my twilight zone.

  • The Cobwebs

    I was leaning
    by the window
    standing outside
    looking in—

  • Wanderer

    by the river
    he looks lost
    his face appears ancient
    in rumination
    under the sycamores’
    embracing shade
    thinks he might see
    God
