Spring Thaw

The stream
undulating
in moonlight, twists and turns
melding crystal curves and dark soft
shoulders.

Still, Magic


Thirty
years of fitting
our bodies together
and still, they sing songs in the key
of love.

Sunset

Sunday's
sun settles down
in thickening branches
and this dangling web holds a leaf
sparkling.
 


Heading Home

Searching
to see inside
the next seconds of fog,
beyond the compass glow into
the night.


Cool Colors


Hundreds
of leaves swirling
the palettes of autumn,
scarlet and crimson and yellow
entwined.
 

Love is Patient

Waiting
for my shadow
at moonrise, you're here  . . .
knowing you're far beyond the stars
waiting.
 
Columbia

Seven
heroes who touched
the sky and dared to dream,
saw earth from afar...then left us
too soon.
 

Long ago. . .

Your eyes
as you held me
in the space of a song
took my breath away...and I fell
in love.

Full Moon Magazine, December 2004
 

Midnight


Thunder
between the peaks
and the wind sounding gongs ...
wild as the trees bent by the storm's
fury.
 

 

Lost Soul


Stark nights
and eerie lights,
lost in shadows she lurks,
with nothing left to see or hold. . .
soulless.

WHR, 2002
 
Crosswalk
 
Red light,
green light, red light . . .
She waves thanks with her cane
as the old dog by her side sits
to rest.

 

Reunion
 
Our dance
last night was magic...
how your touch still lingers
after the ordinary day
begins.

Night Chill

Silence
between deep sighs . . .
under ceiling shadows 
the sliver of moon between us
growing.


Underground
 
His chest
against her breast,
trapped in the rush hour crush...
ah, the light at the end of the
tunnel.


Sea Sounds

Falling
up into stars
from a cradle of sand ...
nestled close beside you, I taste
the night.

Third Date
 
Oysters
on the half shell
slide, polishing our tongues...
icy-cool silken saltiness,
lovely.
