childhood joy outstretching light years

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
how intent the cat
and over the city din
the death throes of stars
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
at odds
with the memory . . .
blossoms
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
the way back
encrypted within 
a monarch's wings
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
broken wing—
lost in the opiate
of being
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
at its heart
a darkening rose's
summer lust
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
ground fog . . .
a swan stretches out
the hush
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
the play 
of shadows passing 
for a god
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
morning cool—
a variety of birds
rise in song
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
sheltering
behind macrocarpas . . .
the warmth within
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
winds wailing
against macrocarpas . . .
such stillness
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
regardless
the coffin's descent
inch by inch
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
sparrow dusk—
a wind swallows up
the last words
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
viscous night—
shadows suffocating
on darkness

              haiku
another          out of line
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
the milky way
sowing seeds
of contemplation
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
this silence
dwelling still before
change is 
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
sun shafts—
golden streams flush out
a peed ant
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
the way of the rose—
the rouged cheeks of dalliance
no longer quench me
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
morning call—
not clear in this heat
the sense of it
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
low cloud
my mind enters
its limits
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
torpid sun
the shadow of me 
bends to my will
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
unborn babe,
do you breathe also
your absence?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
darkness wavers
at its lowest ebb
solstice night
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
solstice—
9pm and still
the sun's light
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
advent ends—
an unapproachable light
enters the tent
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
blessed be he
who gives his blessings
the light he sees
in the mud of the mundane
shall be his inheritance
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
boxing day
my eyes squint between
here and now
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
longer days— 
my eyes zero in on
the milky way
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
crackling ice— 
vapour infused gin
cools the sun
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
first cicada—
a lawnmower competes
in the distance
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
hissing light—
the sound of darkness
on the street
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

for God's sake
                          turn out

     the lights

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
lights out—
what word is left
for this?
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
rats dog,                      god star,
evil emit reviled           deliver time live
live morf                      from evil
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

year's end where the world is
