Alone in the Night

In Poetry on September 16, 2014 at 11:45 am

As I stare at the sky,

and the night deepens,

it seems like a hole

the stars fall into.

Trees wave like black

umbrellas. Life moves on.

It’s nearly over before

it’s begun. After

sixty years, that’s all I know.

I have said what I could.

I only seem able

to drink wine and laugh.

And my future

will be just like my past.

My World

In Poetry on September 11, 2014 at 2:42 pm

I traverse

a fish pond world

gone black

by deadly feet

of swimming children

that pee

and splash

in the water I breathe
