Disenchantment

And I haven't prayed much lately,
though I have much to ask for,
and even One to whom I'd pray

Dying leaves audition
for the part of the butterfly

Rain

Strange, how lately all of my sounds have been amplified,
the colors about me heightened, to taste - to touch - 
is more to savor, an aroma, that's all I remember,
what I bring forward to now, a string of beads,
droplets down the windowpane to me

I search for large falls of water,
any deluge

Once I was backlit by peeks in the forest,
bramble where sunlight rayed through,
dances in silhouette, ground against
a world silent-gray, without taste, 
untouchable, a thin pane away

And I am always
green-blue blue-green 
of many tones

And Just Like That

I told her with a single wind, all the dust would be back

My Prayer

There is a sunflower for Isabella growing in the meadow, it shall be any color she cares it to be, always facing light, with perfect petals

Misted

Hadn’t I just poured myself a coffee, didn’t I now think this thought just the same?

A strange mourning dove keeps cooing outside my window, still I refrain

Off Balance

If you cannot beat them with strength, then defeat them with rhythm

You’re Killing Me Smalls

I yelled out to the red-tailed hawk, crying lonely atop the canopy

You want friends? Stop eating everybody!

Tonight, beneath the setting sky,
in the headlight's throw, 
under the streetlamp

I cast 
three 
shadows

A Flutter Bye

I will miss you more than ever this time,
dear hummingbirds of summer
