Moon


Walk across the blue sky
in your drape of whiteness
not like a wind shifted cloud,
but steady as a rock in a stream

Satellite of earth, your view
is a plethora of color, that streams
through the atmosphere, stratosphere,
more, freely feeds your darkened eyes

Rays of eyes view your features
millenniums of prying sent as flybys,
only in one era then another stomped on,
violated your skin, took a piece

Punctured your elegance you still reflect
light rays and give of yourself, 
so eons of your mystery are just points 
of reference in an astronomy book

When we gaze, now, we see the man.

Always

Always

Monoliths stand 
apart on a barren landscape,
harden, weathered
enduring a long sentence

Desert is dry,
the environment of your home
that views 
landscape from a safe distance 

Hidden storyline
on ochre painted walls 
within your crevices
penetrated by her eyes

Violated, exposed
you tightly hold on to her
silent pleads
never leave me anymore

Always is such a perpetuity.

Veiled


You, 
veiled behind a long
beaded screen of family,
only child capable,
responsible,
to them

Opportunism
abounds like seashells 
dropped by screaming gulls
smashed in the fall
photographed
sold

Accidentally,
like the ocean,
rise up with the tide
leave life behind
tear veil open-
adventure

You tell your story, set free

Skin Hot


Walking, 6am,
dog keeps me company
sun continues to rise
temperature climbs,
amazed to have a wide brimmed hat
skin burns red hot

searching for a drink,
water obtained for parched tongue
step by step, know no limits
advance from home,
now circling back
parched as-

The catus I pass, in red hot skin.
