Tag Archive: that we are at all


What is there
after you’ve flown?

Where are you
once you touched down?

Careful there on the ledge,
perhaps you’ll not fly again.

How sad to have flown
for the last time.

When up is down
to fall is to fly.

How joyous to have
flown at all.

I’d have thought
clouds to be harder.

I invert when I fly
for I am the sky.

So inwardly
I fall.

Alight on soft pockets
of air.

on air.

I pray while
I fall.

The whole planet
is falling.

We spin and we turn and
we tilt and we yaw.

The earth rushes to us
once befallen.

One star
for everyone

We begin
as well as we end

Haiku For Life’s Triptych

chagall backdrop

By the time you blink
now – before you grasp it’s gone
life conceals itself

Two real eyes gaze out
emit light with no body
life intoxicates

Seemingly demur
but then a seductive grin
blows a kiss my way
