“Go home…..

……go home.”

A soft voice

purred.

A face cloth covers

the hall mirror.

Unreflected

shadows pass.

Slowly–

ever so slowly

I turn

To begin again,

having paused,

the long journey

Home.

path ddd

This path,
this simple path.
Painted by day
Scrubbed by night

An
Inexorable black swell,
pricked by latent light.
Derbied moon
Half lit

Wicked short steps,
Cowed long strides.
Different every time

Manifold shines,
Infinite shadows

But it’s mine.
My short
simple path.
Painted
by just me,

As straight
As a dog’s
Hind leg.

This blessed,
cursed
Journey.

The snow falls,

a beautiful & baleful pall

settles outside

my window.

 

Evergreen branches

sag & lightly

sway for a

burgeoning breeze.

 

More to come

they say—not now,

but tonight when

the blizzard blows.

 

Winter weather

–like this,

lays life on pause.

A beautiful, no, gorgeous

 

Funereal silence.

A YELLOW HOUSE

For as long as

a home stands,

it is

never finished.

Winter-washed

Sun, paints a

Naked gray,

Time-worn pallor

On winded &

Rutted snow

 

Knuckle-bent

Rheumatoid

Wracked branches

Glance & grasp

 

A book

Spine unbroken,

less-read.

Petrified moments,

rock-wood dead

 

One less spring,

One less bird-song

sung.

Briny, lipid tide

Barnacle-blood

Ripped skin

 

Humid dazed

Baked &

Burned

 

Sun bright &

Blind

Bare foot,

Bare chested

 

Willful & wanton

unmolested youth.

 

No diving.

Mystic authority

Rules the wood

Earthy contrivance

Sets the bud

For ever good

& lesser evil

 

Dank lit light

On autumn dead

Squared between

Fen & moss

 

Brightly bent

 On beggars breath

“Its life we wants,”

 

Its life we get.
