#fullmoonsocial “Winter Waltz”

fighting with the clouds to see through inky sky my mind wanders to the last months how many times someone comes to mind when I do not wish it dear will-o-wisp clouds enchant me but still I strain to see the moon and it shows just its slip, straining my eyes for only a glimpse, […]

#fullmoonsocial “Penumbral Garments”

You turn your blonde head away from me where I can still see the shadow on your cheek My naked eye is always looking for your tender skin under all of those garments made in the east the search for you is never tiresome as the loss we turn away from or as weary as […]

October 15 [Book of October]

October 15

The western sky’s white but the tiny star’s white’s
Brighter. The bleached day’s bones left for parts west.

On the sky’s other side the hunter’s moon uncrouches
and coughs. It shines off every tin roof of every hundred

Year old house but does not compare to the silent
Ocean of mid-day’s leaf shadows on the back yard’s

Softly swaying grass I saw earlier, so perfect
I pulled a chair off the porch and sat in the midst

Of its going-nowhere motion until I felt the day’s
Balance point precisely: all things moving, everything still.

First Night in The New House, with Full Moon (#fullmoonsocial2015)


First Night in The New House, with Full Moon

The rising full moon fills in
a small cratered crack in the old window

where a stone or BB years ago must
have dug in before reflecting off its loss

As I sit with my son waiting for his breathing
to level into what I know will be dreams

of the many things he will make and be
the moon continues across the sky

and out of the window’s framing (though the moon
in the window cratered out bright and tiny

remains where it is
how like the past sometimes refuses to move)
