here and there, the moments

image

the far side
of the spider’s web
-bridge to a blue star

morning glories
adding their voice
to the blackberries

moonless-
we walk in the dark
quietly

morse code to the heavens
-a woodpecker
on a satellite dish

the excitement of a spring breeze
-trees showing off
both sides of their leaves

stars glide along the river water
to suddenly break free
into this young spring night

traveling along the freeway
in the cool evening air
-a guitar riff

the tingle in my nose
before I sneeze
-incipient stars

summer storms cast runes
across the forest floor
-a prediction of chaos

the light beyond

image

blustery open field
crows inciting
a riot

fearless sandpiper chases away
the mighty sea
and her creatures

frost settling
on my old dog’s
muzzle

warm summer day
-fixing the dripping faucet
finally

missed opportunities-
so many stars
so little light

saying too much-
scraping the black
off of the toast

stars between dusk and morning
-molars crunching ice
in the summer heat
