the black god rises

the black god rises

in the swell of ocean waves

looks for his golden target

reaches out

caresses

verdant grasses

curls back his tongue

hunting

Driving in rain, over Patapsco River

crossing bridge

winter branches

floating mist

wipers

rhythm

drum

under florescent lights

thoughts cease

fold themselves

into paper airplanes

flown by

careless children

then

forgotten

of weapons
pale full moon
strangled gently

Pet Inspiration

After getting a cat, I am surprised to find myself getting attached to him, as he is to me. Buddy, my cat, was given to my husband by his mother. She would go into the nursing home if he would take the cat. It was a deal only my mother-in-law could broach, mafia-like he “couldn’t refuse,” ha. Now that Buddy has taken over my house and favorite chair, he has also become an art inspiration. Mind control??

Love Poem

1

this book of love notes

lies next to our shopping list,

plans for meals,

to be placed on the lips

and savored.

 

2

circle of sun

warmth

of your embrace

perfect grace

 

3

Thanks for that middle-of-the-day phone call.

i hear your voice and instantly rejoice.

It is a balm in grey sky winter,

a holiday seaside calm.

 

4

as light fades

darkened by clouds and time

i wait

while cooking

while reading

for the click of your key

to unlock home

 

5

I whisper your name

in prayer

in supplication

to sooth

At night

I curl my arm around

your smooth flank

contour my body along yours

I whisper your name

a lullaby

 

6

curve of your body against mine

tells a complicated calculus of comfort

eclipse of day worries and heaven’s delights
