the world

the world
has slowed
d-o-w-n to
an indescribable
halt
what was is
history
and now
is not
the spinning
and chasing of
tales
is like melting butter
on a Royal Wedgewood
plate
slipping from the world’s
fingers
like a runaway
top

serendipity

the serendipity of falling
and hoping
but knowing
that the person
was too far away
and things were
happening too fast

conversation

tall corn grazing
waiting for the chickens
cows wandering by

tall corn grazing
the sky

It is the thought

It is the thought of calming
cohesive colors
that bring me to sit
gazing at the sea
at the end of the day

jelly fish

I had a jelly fish thought
but it wouldn’t
cooperate in a poem
so I left it
alone.

Unmanifested Creativity

sometimes it feels
like walking on air
sometimes
there is too much gravity
there
And then there is
falling
“Falling
but then the abyss is
so endless
that I am not falling
at all”

the time

i touched the beach today
with the sand beneath my feet
walking through the surf
my mind was at peace
i was covered by the clouds
the sun was still behind
it was the time
the time that was
mine

never happened

They will call this the summer
that never happened
because we were in our houses
The feeling of the sea while
standing in the surf
was missed because we never
opened and went out the door
The people were missed and
their voices not heard
We were lost in our thoughts
and feelings of fear
And we never opened the door
to let the summer begin

Oblique Kiss

So here it is
a week
And here is an
Oblique Kiss
that is more like a poke
or a tweak
like being in the grocery store
and getting a bump
from behind
You can smile back
And say you don’t mind
And then you can decide
whether or not
you want a different kind of kiss
in a week’s time
Or just a regular old SMOOCH

Obtuse Kiss

I am sending you an Obtuse Kiss
It is coming to you
Not directly
But a little bit
Off to the side
It is coming to you
from where you can’t see it
but it can feel you
so you can’t hide
when it lands
on your ear, your nose, or your eye
even though it was meant
for your cheek
And if you are really liking it
I can send you an Oblique Kiss
In a week
