too slow to rustle
through the dry
brittle bones of
old oak leaves
tiny bits of sky
reaching toward
the warming sun

harsh gnashing season /
bones of last winter /
exhumed by spring thaw /
life feeds off of death /
cells of one being

i hear a coming calling
a complex communing
i stop to raise my head
looking for the crosses
of cranes on the wing

I Feel Spring!


I feel Spring on the wind's warm moist breath.

It whispers to the ears of my tired soul.
It stirs up the cooling embers of hope.
It blows away the ashes of depression.

I feel Spring's strong hand upon my shoulder.

I write as water flows -
Until all words dry up.
There I abide in dust -
Until my vessel refills.

Baby Love -

She smiles,
and my heart,
is captured.
She squeals,
and my soul,
is untethered.
She hugs,
and my mind,
is soothed.
She kisses,
and my light,
becomes brighter.
She speaks,
and my will,
becomes hers.
She pokes
me in the eye,
and I smile!
