Who would vote for this man?

It's written all over his face!

In media res. . .

In media res

Always, our arrival
Just as the downstairs maid
pours the boiled water
over the tea leaves
in cup bottom

The sky explorer
crosses the international

Mare nickers
to foal

Damselfly leaves
her leaf
launches into oxygen

Dung beetle approaches

And us. Here.
Begging for attention.

There Is No Beginning No End

There Is No Beginning No End

light turns a corner
no longer in sight
silence call dropped
into the night
ashes shared with ocean
with mountain
voice on the other end
mid sentence
finished as all conversations are
by the hearer
continued as all lives are
by the still living

Air interrupted
Startle of light
Leafing sculpture
Not marble
Not bronze
Breathing leaves
Array of gold
Yellow, green,
Scarlet, dangling
Each leaf a hand
As real as sun
Clouds, rain
Waving, blessing
Speaking in whispers
Rhythm of breezes
Falling in clusters
Embroidering the road
Winter harbinger
Season’s refrain
Beauty indelible.
