Eclipse

She could not find him
though she ran through the apple orchard,
the garden, and the clover-sweet lawn.

A Koi’s Voice

A koi’s voice
Rises slowly from the muck
Breaking glass.

Swelling, bursts with each succeeding word
Lingers, thought by thought
In rolling ripples
Arches like thick fins waving

Sings
Measured, weighted,
Slick with patience.
Curling forward from the swinging tale
Of fish.

Shocking lemon yellow-bright blossoms
harbinger of freshly laundered clothes
on clotheslines to come

Away With the Numb Mask

And after the day is done,
I seek after you,
For a peony vision, circling
Above us both, storm of lavender

We twist the sheets in this way
And bring our daily convulsions
To a rest, in one another.

Nothing Else to Trouble Us

The earth is even now,
And the winds blow back with me,
With such warm breath,

Gently untying coats, removing
Gloves from hands, and everywhere
The world is covered in sweet

Soft flames, this is a place
For my beloved and I.
