February 1st
working inside all day long
I forget the sky

    old man
    hitting the gas, instead of the brakes ...
    in winter
    murder of crows
    caws in flight ~
    dreary winter afternoon
    rolling grey waves
    endless motionless clouds -
    drizzling rain upon my brow

    she craves salty food
    looking at strawberry moon
    eating a pickle

    creating ceramic piece
    enjoying the process
    not for sale

    prolonged noon nap
    waking up to find
    dusk like dawn

    Nice 5/7/5, though I really don't see the point in
    writing them, though there is nothing wrong either;
    just lazy I guess? If you're interested in the Mad Poets Soc., Media, or Virgilio Assoc., Camden, NJ. Drop me a line.

    wavering, strong winds
    eaglet fearful of flight ~
    same rhetoric


    new sunrise
    later, sunset


    indecision -
    the winds journey
    who understands the reason
