A moment / the corner of the sky poems

 

Lying in a

bed of 

open

eagles

wings,

 

my lips 

rest upon

your lips

and my

soul

aches

to find

it's place

in yours.

 

we walk

the journey

before 

us your

hand held

strong

in mine,

 

the seeing

of life

shared

between

our open

spirit

eyes.

 

we become

true

witness

to the

world

and ener...

The giving of the light / the corner of the sky poems

 

Up through

our veins

and tender

places,

 

nurtured

by our

breathing

hearts,

 

we remember

paths

of feelings

long ago

traveled,

 

given

once

never

turned

back 

upon.

 

the reaching

of hands

the giving

of light.

 

illuminating

dark shadows.

 

the coming

of age

and the

reclaiming

of all

A invitation /corner of the sky poems

 

It was

a heavenly

invitation

of sorts,

 

and I 

accepted

it gladly,

 

to be

the child

on the

horizon

to your

morning

light.

 

until the

wake

of your

beliefs

in the

water

beneath us

swallowed

me,

 

and I

was cold

and it

was dark

 

and the

air that

I struggled

for was

you.

this place / the corner of the sky poems

In this

corner

now

where

I have

put myself

away

from you.

 

I peel

away the

old tried

skins

of my

melancholy

words,

 

that

 once

gave me

tenderness

and daily

salvation.

 

it seems that

it has been 

this way 

for so

long it

is almost

all that

I can

remember.

 

it was

the revealing

of my

Corner of the sky poems

The river
skips and
splashes
against
it's muddy 
flesh.

and laughs
and sings
to the 
wind.

and then
turns
a bend
and becomes
calm
under
this cimmaron
sky.

coyote
clouds
lie above

the deep 
wet pools
of your 
eyes.

where
the big 
fish swim,

and mother
earth
comes
to rest 
and drink

for a 
spell.

to lie
still
in your
breasts,

and listen
in tune
to your
heart

Italy dreams / the nowhere poems

 

Her young heart

fell to her feet,

 

like an

over ripe fig 

from a

swollen tree

in a meadow.

 

the weight was 

unbearable,

 

the season

was right 

the taste 

of harvest 

was aching 

upon her lips.

 

she would

of given anything 

for the taste 

of something 

or someone unlike 

anything that

she had

ever known.

The muse / the nowhere poems

 

Find my 

words in

your breath,

 

when a moment

takes your

breath away. 

 

I write

to your 

youth,

 

I write 

to the woman

you are

and the 

woman

you someday 

might be.

 

the daughter

the wife

the mother 

the grandmother,

the beauty 

of all time

passing.

 

and though

always I

will just be a far

away wi...

Patty's magic bus / the nowhere poems

 

Again this 

morning I

saw her,

Patty.

 

She sits

at the bus stop

wishing for

the big

yellow bus to 

come ,

 

or is it 

the next one,

or the one

after that.

 

Life has hit

her hard,

open wounds 

easy to read.

 

She doesn't belong

to anyone else 

anymore.

 

Her broken heart 

out of rhythm

kicked to

the side

Full turn / the nowhere poems

 

The waking

of dreams

to black

places,

 

the letting

go of 

hands,

 

and then 

the bumping

of things

that go 

wandering mad

in the

dark.

 

the sirens

whisper of 

self-pity

and broken

words

tossed

together

at  a poet's

feet.

 

The heartless

realization that 

not all

seeds

beneath

a Michigan

winter...

Awake again / the nowhere poems

 

Lying alone
in the 
dark.

have all
of your
rose pedal
promises
fallen
at your
angel
feet?

is time
just a silhouette
of tired 
dreams,

lost
through
the open
windows
of your
eyes.

as your
love touch
lies unanswered.

a treasure

for true
love
to find.

waiting in
your sleep

running 
when you 
are
awake

to the 
place,

where
the souls
of missing
people lie.
