Evening Walk
September 26, 2009

holding her hand tonight as
we walked into the coming
darkness i remembered back to
that night twenty-two years ago
when we held hands for the first
time and started our journey
as two who would weave a life
together and become one


On Turning 46
September 26, 2009

as the night passes and i grow
into another year i think back to
my childhood and remember
wishing to be as i now am and
yet each passing year brings a
longing for the days long set
when that boy lived in what
seemed to be an eternal world
of innocence and dreams

The Hunters

delicious plays with her prey which
squeaks thinking it just may escape
but roger interrupts and wastes no
time in turning her game into a meal

Morning Meal
September 26, 2009

a raven flies ahead of me carrying
some disgusting furry meal looking
with disgust at my having disturbed
his morning banquet upon the road

the half moon and jupiter hide
behind the coming storm as the
winds blow through the night
this first saturday of autumn

First Day of Autumn
September 23, 2009

hazy fog covers the morning sky
with thick rain hidden behind the
west wind brings a chill as the season
turns once again into days which
grow darker with the setting sun

as the family slips into bed and
begins their night of dreaming
i sit in the garage for a smoke
and listen to the crickets sing
praises of the coming autumn
