memories
of old lovers
a heat haze
lingers
through the evening

Blithe Spirit Vol.29 No.3 August 2019
looking for patterns
where there are none
I see them anyway
all the ways we find
to complicate things

Blithe Spirit Vol.29 No.3 August 2019
parma violets
the haziness
of summer memories

out of a dream
escaping time
into a world
where there is no
past or future

Blithe Spirit Vol 29 No 2 May 2019

this life
and the life of
the imagination
a battle sequence coincides
with the spin cycle

Blithe Spirit Vol 29 No 2 May 2019

in the shiny curve
of the bath tap
my tiny self

Blithe Spirit Vol 29 No 2 May 2019

turning a corner
and old man stops and leans
into the wind

once again
the bird that sings
in darkness
the doctor agrees
I'm not depressed

Blithe Spirit. Vol.28 No.3 August 2018

today's darkness
doesn't make me sad
closing my eyes
I wrap myself in it
like a soft blanket

Blithe Spirit Vol.28 No.3 August 2018
the funeral
of a friend
of a friend
watching planes take off
into the evening sun

Blithe Spirit Vol.28 No.2 May 2018
mid-sentence
I stop to wonder
what I think
and why I'm using
someone else's words

Blithe Spirit Vol.28 No.2 May 2018
learning
how to dance
to sad songs
the blues-man's
shuffling feet

small cuts
that barely break the skin
over the years
he's become used to
how she speaks to him
