Clouds II

Looking at shades
& shadows
Tints & tinctures
Open expanses of
Colors overlapping
Going out of & into
Passing thru like
Insubstantial entities
The sun explores
Each one as an
X-ray taken of a
Translucent body
Absent of organ
Or bone only pure
Thought or emotion
Floating in time
To an unspoken
Rhythm oblivious
Amongst turmoil
Out of touch
Until finally
Out of sight

Device

Too simple to
Grasp the
Concept

Too old to
Attempt
This new

I’ve
Lost my edge
Lost the spark

It’s getting
Cold

Where’s my
Shawl

Damn it

Outage

Sitting in the dark of
Another powerless
Morning the electric
Drone is noticeably
Absent as all other
Sounds are muffled
Outside the window
Rain is drumming on
The road while the
Wind claws at our
House as if seeking
A secret way in the
Fire’s been lit in the
Fireplace & now hot
Water’s whistling on
The stove / it’s fast
Approaching dawn &
I’ll soon dowse the
Candles / lately I’ve
Been reading from
An old book & yet
The words sound a
Bit different in my
Head this morning
As if desperate to be
Understood at the
Dawn of revelation
Where the sun also
Rises even in this
Unquiet darkness

Tabula Rasa*

The violins sound
Like the strain of angel wings
Vying for balance

Renovation

The clouds are building
Like architects devouring
All within their path
