You didn't let it
go out, death returned to dust

Give and take...

This shadow lingers,
borrowing from the morning;
lengthening his reach

like an old miser,
whittling away minutes
from a growing branch.

Craved darkness descends
on this day prayed to end,

through hours of silent thoughts, tortured
with physical pain unseen; unsure

of cause or reason; these mysteries
in recessed dark, Interruption's chiding

reminding, of life just at fingertip's reach
and grasping tries unable to breach

collapsing, into the hunger of dreams'
simplicity; simply, unraveling at the seams.

Anxious adolescence, time of changing
light, lingeringly pleading
this favor, an invitation to stay,
to exist among teasing shadows, forms
old and new, silhouettes of a promise
flickering to dusk,

Seasons blur at gray sky's returning
memories, uncomfortable in predestined skin;
changing, evolving unknown reflections
in waters of glass, rushing
with an embarrassed blush,
trading new colors for familiar

The River Paved.

Conjured waters rise; seductively
a caddis dances.

Hooking dashes of motionless orange,
caught and reeled away from bikes' paths
and commuters' existence in oblivion; through lines

and leaders of a lone man's thoughts
feeding, in the silted memory of haunts.

A Seasoned Soul.

Does my soul bear reflection of the seasons?
With rhythms created to be precisely set,
balancing arrhythmias within a reasoned
heart, leaving its appetite whet.

After winter's brooded unease of mind
collapses into perfect grace
at spring's turn, to find
unexpected joy in its place.

Clouds hung low; mirage
the truth of heights, bending down
to reach fallen worlds.
