trees

~
eyes
turned
upwards
I glance at trees
to know my pulse
how today’s gonna be
seeing them in nouveau
frippery, bare bones
covered in colorful lingerie
sluggish heart skips beats
gleefully
Spring’s a coming…
nay,,
it’s here
finally !

weather permitting

Face facing
Skywards
I question
In store
~

Plans topsy
Go belly up in no
time, weather
permitting
~
with implicit
Faith in heart
I simply accept
Going with flow
~
Accepting, never
Feeling any need
To be in know, knowing
HE best knows
~
Split
Second
Does pack
Mighty punch
~

streets

nature’s confetti
strewn pavements
corridors hold own
allures
~
sniffing air
lifting eyes
I seek sky
beyond trees
~
feet
optimistically
fold streets
till endings
~
every ending
supposedly is
a new beginning
till dead ends
~
dead ends
make head take
stock, suddenly spirit
soars taking off
~

coup de grâce

NovNYC2013

winter’s sun
continues to run
weakening minute
by minute, overtaken
by myriad light eaters
on heels
~
Seasonal birds
of prey ferociously
cracking benevolent egg
yolk sun’s shell to pieces
leaking its warmth as crows
cherry picking shiny pieces
~
blustery gale force
winds offer neither leeway
nor breathers, bloodthirstily
joining forces bludgeon cornered
sun shattering in single fell
swoop coup de grâce
~
shivering
cuddling
palms cupping
hot beverages
we pray for return
of our lion maned sun

autumn

image

November gently
Eases mind
Into instant
reveries
~
Beauty arrives
With autumn
In multi colored
Finery
~
Pirouetting
Coquettishly
Awhile
Prior
~
to
finally
Disintegrating
Leaves that flamed
Flaring bright gold
Oranges magentas
Now scrunch underfoot
In faded egg yolk colors
Biting dust
~
Taking life
On my chin
I boldly bite
Into it, better
To mulch and chew
My “nows” eschewing
All my disgruntled
could’ve
should’ve
been
“Rues”
~
