flesh hangs from the beak
run-over-squirrel surrounded
a murder of crows

with hydrofracking
one more way to harm ourselves
insatiable we

i do love this life
beautiful autumn run helps
one of six billion

busy weeks like this
do not go by in a flash
and so it begins

autumn leaf tremble
with the dark night now over
feel sun's kiss all day

these marks i carry
permanent impermanence
another season

migratory birds
arrive here only to leave
their nests before them

no walk in the park
season of the personal record
a focused effort

jazz makes you smarter
one of the few truths i know
take that to the bank

Thursday, September 22, 2011


each day a wonder
i never tire of this line
nor do i these days

a tree churning wind
can be heard through closed window
sweeps through the night sky

what could be cooler
your very own farnsworth house
a lego version


archetypes surface
swimming forth, emerge in dream
i toss and i turn

pleasure of the ride
city unfolds before me
where is my camera

Sunday, September 18, 2011


voice hoarse from shouting
dark cross was spectacular
bell arm wrung ragged

Friday, September 16, 2011


all summer untouched
there you sat in the cupboard
now the tea is out

Thursday, September 15, 2011


voice of the prairie
i heard on the radio
a love for this land

Wednesday, September 14, 2011


first trip of season
many hours on this highway
many years a well

Tuesday, September 13, 2011


with seventeen syllables
sometimes a challenge

erudite choices
to avoid the cunjunction
possible at times

one too many, one too few
not always havens

Monday, September 12, 2011


clouds move overhead
not to pass, passing, or passed
there it is, a life

Sunday, September 11, 2011


since we met, again
four seasons, impossible
can it be a year

Saturday, September 10, 2011


keeping me awake
afloat in all that warm air
september full moon

sun's kiss soon frost's bite
following a dry summer
the season of the wasp

soon the lake will freeze
premature to say that now
perhaps dramatic

another school year
summer heat, but summer gone
the geese have been seen

Tuesday, September 6, 2011


perfect day for beach
it felt like summer's last day
remembered by friends

Monday, September 5, 2011


fast calculations
the movement's smooth arc follows
trail ride fixed unique

relatively small
i can just hear paddy say
'big rig for big jim'


rode you home last night
still waiting for your rear brake
excuse for fixed build

so high off the ground
you feel like a monster truck
but how would i know

sunday to ourselves
before owen's football game
time to find some trails

Friday, September 2, 2011


a new year begins
a wonderful thing to say
a great gift itself

Thursday, September 1, 2011


just kilometres
forty six for forty six
chaffing and sore legs
