Here are a couple of poems from the chapbook. Enjoy!
Sometimes shadows whisper
like the sound of bamboo,
rustling fingers reaching
for the wind
… feeling it pass through
Sometimes he lies on grass,
straining his ears
for the shush shush
of her feet
… imagining her near
Sometimes she stands like
a tree, sways and breathes,
with her arms stretching
… trying to touch what cannot be
The flagstones are cloaked in a
skin of dust, scattered this dawn
with the circular prints of
desiccated rain drops.
Photos, letters, memories.
These, too, are shadows of living
rounded things: the expressions on
your faces, your tears and laughs.
The rain came in the night,
Its music soft as sleep.
I did not wake or hear it pass,
but its marks remain, attest.
Your journey takes you on, now,
movement as of wind and cloud.
Leaving me to the transient day,
Grateful, even so, for gifts that were.
