I am struck by the feather of your soft reply

The bluebird carries the sky on his back

We’re not in Wonderland anymore, Alice

Leave no black plume as a token

Feathers in the Grass

Stones in the driveway
and cigarette butts
Wonder who put ‘em there
Was it the woodpecker
whose incessant pounding
on the gable of the house next door
would give anyone else a headache
I don’t think so
The smallest of those stones
would be too much for the woodpecker to carry
and cigarette butts aren’t its style

The coal train on approach
earthquake of the snake
growls deep
electromagnetic
four engines in front
two behind
a hundred and thirteen cars between them
pushed and pulled
wheels groaning
riding the rails
clickety-clack
smashing my pennies
feeding my spirit
cross tie walkin’
Pick ‘em up
lay ‘em down
put ‘em in your pocket
you silly assed hoary-headed boy

Wishing and praying for miracles
is not a waste of time
It is an investment in the future
a testament
avowal of faith
a requiem to lost love
a whispered cry to be found again
We are crickets singing
coyotes howling lonely to their young
a tumble-me-down in giggles
simple and innocent children of earth
a tender-moment awaiting a kiss to seal
