Canyon Echoes

The calls
of a raven
carried on canyon winds
merge with distant thunder under
stark skies.

Each Year


The pie
from the pumpkin
that grins from the front porch
now served by grandma, with whipped cream
and love.

First Love

Our kiss
like the first drop
of rain in summer's heat
cool at first, blending into
sweet warmth.
 
 
Swiftly


Fall wind                 
so suddenly
splitting and whipping trees
swirling and moaning at midnight
then gone.

Chance Meeting

Kissing
hello again,
the smile I remember
turns itself loose at the edge of
your lips.

Alien 
 
Speaking
in five-line breaths
from the Planet Cinquain;
the old poet who wishes to
come home
 

Awaken

Slowly
in the stillness
half-shadows stir, curving
into the warmth of each other
with love.

 
 


Dreams of Spring

Under

blankets of snow
daffodils dream of spring
and the promise of the sun's warmth
shining.
 

Grandpa


And then
from deep inside
stars crackle from the past
through his heart, taking him from his
last dream.

 

Valentine's Day

For me?
How sweet! Perfume,
wine and dark chocolates
on my pillow. Soft candlelight
tonight.

Autumn Leaves, v7n4  


Gumshoe

This sleuth
unfazed by threats,
a master of disguise . . .
adopting personas, Sherlock
lives on.

Unknown
 
Bad air,
vile vortices
from the fourth dimension,
devils at play? As ships and planes
vanish
in the Triangle, the myth of
a mystical vortex
to Atlantis
remains.
 
Enticing
 
The curves
of my lover
unlike any other,
how they arouse all the senses
when kissed . . . 
exploring the curve of his back
to the curve of his neck,
watching his lips
call me.
