On the front porch, rain slants in
through trellis, ivy, and rosebush,
spatters my face with cold drops.

Listening to a growing breeze
taunt the wind-chimes,
I’m almost happy, for a change.

Music of varied tones;
orchestrated air –
blowing from the canyon
with spring-sweet scents.

The dogs caper in newly mowed grass,
ensuring green paws for days.
They let the rain soak them,
look up at grey sky – as if giving thanks
for this bounty. Watching,
I wonder if dogs feel it too –
the peaceful heart of our world.


Sleeping Out

The dark light
is vast silence,
filled with stars.

I feel wind on my neck.
It lifts the tiny hairs,
with its cool breath.

Above bluish black grass.
trees stir restlessly;
whisper “You’re so small”.
A gasp in a lifetime,
or a mouse’s heart in winter.

Night moves gently,
aware that I’m here,
but allowing
my intrusion.
