and lo, there it was
extra day without asking
and what have we done

like a cage fight
only one allowed to leave
i wrestle with words

through window sun's warmth
shaded side colder for it
yet not forsaken

26.02.12


in use redemption
with pouring if not dripping
flecked rotten faucet

24.02.12


behind me a past
sunlight creeps across the wall
in front a future

settle, home again
my excitement palpable
up here in the stacks

coming and going
in the snow i find their tracks
long after they've passed

now that i've begun
the waiting appropriate
it's passing welcome

speckled predator
nineteenth century metaphor
despoiled watershed

mote of dust floating
in the light before my eyes
we will both settle

11.02.12


morning light on pine
still sealed in last night's cold air
can offer no warmth

pigeon, this cold night
huddled tight in day's last sun
how will you do it

everyday worries
how i long for a cliche
opportunities?

please forgive my cheek
for with it i mean no harm
just humility

wheeling overhead
ruffle, black feathers, blue sky
winged intelligence

for hours on end
fifteen minutes at a time
at this spot i stare

now salubrious
yet to come wind's cold daggers.
ancient winter day

05.02.12 ii


time and space are linked
by, it seems, engineering
water through the land

05.02.12


unfathomable
yet a story does emerge
surreal convergence

03.02.12


i.
fogshroud snowy owl
disappear and words emerge
to vanish themselves

ii.
as the fog lifted
the sun emerged with diamonds
in the fleeting frost

iii.
like stones from a feild
with paragraphs build upon
haiku foundation

iv.
words channeled elsewhere
eddy in other projects
flow forth here again
