photo a day...wishing don't make you vine


chinese indigo
from winter dead
twigs, explode
maniac bazooka blooms
but wishing
don't, no wishing
don't make you

photo a day...once great

 once you stood
so grand and strong

violently, horribly used
you asked 
make me small

now you stand
so delicate

photo a day...drawn, by the moon


I do it wrong
so wrong, so I do
it so wrong some more
draw with
a celestial etchosketch
shake, click, clear
the screen, start again

remember that time
in ocracoke, long after the
sun and last ferry were gone
off season, on the shore
darkness romanced itself
and we were left to see the stars

dark leveled
trees and seagrass
dunes, but the
constant melt of the waves
washed invisible sand

full, fat moon
sidles up and over me
stirring my brain
my eyelids like
cheap, white roll up shades
a bandaid stuck on a summer sun
mom telling me to nap
pretending a dark
that even my closed eyes
can clearly see
isn't there

drawn, by the moon

photo a day...why not?

water fell, time flew and two old friends laughed, finally deciding 'why not?'

photo a if in a dream

she laid down
by the sprouts
that only months ago
she dreamed of

two days

for two days
he tried to escape
when, at last,  he made it out
he sat, as though in no hurry
doing what
then finally took off

photo a day...mellow

the fish that
live outside
the aquarium
red cedar at it burns
makes us

photo a day...intoxicated

is there a group
maybe somewhere
i should go

an outdoor rehab

admitting i have
a problem is
half the battle, right

i am out of control
and i like it

i will stop the car
to drink you in

risk hyperventilation
to get my fill

i wait for you
for months

but you are always
as sweet as
my imagination

photo a day...a day in the park

saturday morning at the farmer's market
beautiful flowers, early spring produce
baked goods delivered fresh from heaven
herbs, hand made soaps
people milling around
carrying baskets and recycled bags

artisans standing behind their handiwork expressing their beauty

         children gathering teeny wild bouquets for their mom

                scrap exchange decorating strong breezes

 a metalsmith in the community foundry heating, forging iron

learning about bonded sand, iron pours
making connections with those who follow their heart

                     steel drums played by the college hands
                     dancing and woo-ing to their own music
                     women dance together
                     dads sit crossed legged with their kids
                     people drawn by remembered dreams
                     they clap, toe tap and bop in place
                     drop money for the musicians in a drum case

                    knowing that this is the good life
