the daisies
untouched

rock pools
the refreshing chill
after sundown

for traces of you

silvery moon
baby and I asleep
on the rocking chair

the old yard
once full of scrap
and rust
now home to
a myriad violets

.

the day
the fools gather
in the circle
I kick off my shoe
and join the dance

.

a distant echo
of mad loon songs
my spirit
left sleeping
under northern skies

It took me years
       of lacework classes
to make the runner
on my dining table

but you – light-footed,
      eight-eyed spinner –
have simply tiptoed
the night, tracing

a garland
       across my window.

between
thunderstorms…
eyes closed
we breathe every
scent of the calm

wind from the northeast
he moves their wedding pics
into the cloud

.

after months apart
they talk about this and that
(not the other thing)

packed waiting room
I can barely hear
The Sounds of Silence
