On the shoulders of Earth

The space
between two clouds
bridged by birds.

Shy buds peek out
on lofty boughs
unassuming beauty.

The river churns
spilling water outward
tributaries teeming with life.

Canopies gyrate
as the world spins
birds unhinged.

At a crosswind
a crow flies east
its feathers west.

Azure sky
the bluebird
vanishes.

Jigsaw
trees
shift
like
puzzle
pieces –
interlocking
edges
of
Earth
&
Sky –
one
seamless
moment.

From
the
forest –
a deep
silence
echoes –
roots
resonate
tree
to tree –
ground
breaking
harmonies.

Bound
for the sun –
a tree begins
its journey —
on the shoulders
of Earth.

Chlorophyll palettes

Chlorophyll palettes Variegated
leaves pop
their pigments –
veins swirl & mix
a glossy sheen –
chlorophyll-painted
palettes of Spring.

Rubberband rhymes

A feeling
of a feeling –
a sense
sensed –
a taste
touched.

Poets with
their contortionist
tongues –
twisting words
to fit any
verse –
snapping
rubberband
rhymes –
on the corners
of our mind.

In the
unwritten
words
& unheard
silence –
I will be my
unbecoming.

Thoughts
weigh heavy
on my brain –
feelings resist
change –
I am a slave
to pleasure
& pain –
a sense of
what remains.

A poet’s wish –
to be inspired
by everything
& nothing –
just sit & stare
& go nowhere
but here in
this moment.

Uncover
the vastness
of your mind –
look deep inside –
and tap into your
potential.

Listening to
my muse –
lost in the
thought
of thoughts –
I feel my
heart beating
twice.

The pupil
of my mind’s
eye –
a coffee
bean
black as
night –
growing
in size.

Seaside rally

1-Seaside rally

Swept across the shore
countless grains of sand
rally around the ocean.

Quietly moving

A silkscreen of mist
woven over the trees
whispering softly.

Encased in silence
the tiny seed stirs
yawning cotyledons.

Worms tunnel
beneath my feet —
their powerful bodies
quiver & shake —
quietly moving
mountains.
