curdled clouds
scatter phantom shapes
…humpbacked moon

honed chisels strip
the glue of guilt
in slivers almond fine

flinders fly while
from a refuge of rock
old loss is planed away

smooth form bestowed ~
like lackluster limbo

Fib for Aging

elder boys
restore teenage angst
drive dreams of immortality

Going Home Again

thrumming tires
asphalt hot
mark the miles
high beams spear
the double-dark of night

a country house
buttons up two knolls
panes of warmth
drag buried yearning
toward my throat

the Cleavers
suit and dress
children two point five
share a faultless dusk

like I’ve never known

morning’s breaking news
divulges to the dreamer
that private lights
aren’t what
they could have been

Original abstract watercolor: No Return

spring runoff
floods low flung washes
lichen spreads

shadowy rivers
hold root bound secrets of birch
clouds eclipse the moon

rain alters
massive limestone cliffs
hourglass sand

planes the indigo
waking waves

After the Saffron Flowers

Drawn toward the land
of wind-polished stone
arroyos breeding rabbit brush
Joshua trees that curl
where hawks knife endless sky
and death is dry and clean.
I place my palm
on alabaster marble,
Buddha belly of
the newborn boy,
watch the desert
brown and cracked
crawl across my hand.

Poetry Thursday is a great spot to visit and play!

Haiku and Watercolor

puffing in sunlight
pigeon struts a mating dance
hungry cat crouches

loons cry a backchord
for a lonely train whistle
surprises coyote

Change of Pace

A brown shoe world
flat as waning seas
before the dying sun
turned up
hard on the heels
of seven neon years.
Alchemy, mercury gray,
revamped her soul
walked her from stilettos
into a pair of empty loafers.

Shadow and Light

high noon Pegasus
raucous crow flashes ol’ Sol
sheds doppelganger
