It is at

It is at
Forest
Edges
Where we see them
Most clearly.

Shadow laid on shadow
Cut by sunlight
Bare branches
Life tightly sealed inside
Bark and layered rings
Counting years
Back into past.

All cast
Against
Cerulean winter
Sky so clear
I can almost see
The infinite
Stars
Beyond.

Rotate

at the monastery

we walk

clockwise

like the sun

moves in our sky.

we spin

each bronze wheel

one after another.

we seek harmony

turning

these 12th century

fidget spinners.

Holding babies,
Making art,
Singing loudly
In the rain.

Hamburg & Russell Street

Morning,

the young beggar stands,

blanket thrown over narrow shoulders,

flimsy white undershirt,

a pile of rags at his feet.

We in cars ignore him,

cast eyes at ruby stop light,

and rising cobalt sky.

Escaped sunflower,

sits in a car, a

moon faced woman

w/ styled bob,

reads her cell phone.

Wheeling seagulls

search for garbage.

Undershirt,

dull khaki jeans,

work boots,

he smokes the 2nd cigarette of the day,

carefully counts them out.

He carries his sign

with jaunty steps,

but

his eyes

are hollow.
