Contemplation

Standard

the breath from your blue eyes

Was more thrilling than i thought.

you strum a guitar.

i knew you knew this

But want to end our silence-

a strange breathing fawn.

I knew that love

was not a moments glancing

or brief holding dream.

I knew it was not

a grand palace to steal from

where illusions gleam

and this was not a

starry passageway to warmth

with honey burning.

so I felt relieved

for knowing the difference, but

I still wish for truth.

still

it’s nice to return

to memory that’s lasted

three minutes in time

Three Haikus

Standard

Three Haikus

1. the floorboards creaking
cold green rivers rush outside
empty, white, old house.

2. the arrow misses
travelers seeing a new sun
audible stillness.

3. above the ground, ice;
everything is freezing now
so much for summer!
