Otata 24

  • before the siren

    autumn sunset
    before the siren
    the flash of lights

    deeper into night
    a bedside vigil

    leg twitches
    the ragged snores
    of an old hound

    a breath of wind escapes
    the sanctuary of light

  • the imprint of dreams

    golden midges
    circle in and out
    of existence

    around the moon
    a halo widens

    mackerel skin
    patterns in the wet sand
    become strato cirrus

    the familiar becomes
    the imprint of dreams
