  • a sea view

    a sea view
    filled with countless flaws
    missing the point

  • Autism - to my daughter

    Autism
    (to my daughter)
     
    afterglow
    word by word
    light withdraws
     
    until
    it has no self
    cooing dove
     
    the hedgehog
    curling into itself
    finger-found
     
    illusions
    tip-toe through the death
    of beached waves
     
    somewhere deep
    within the blast of time
    a silence grows
     
    moon-bathed
    her lightness of footfall
    on the earth
  • Focal Point

     
    Focal Point
     
     
    Living things are defined by their ability to eat, move, reproduce, excrete, sense, breathe, and grow. How many have to be taken off this list before I lose definition?
     
    twilight mist
    whisper-words
    hang about
  • for a shadow

  • open window

    open window
    I direct a bee
    back to work
