What Drives Us

broken down on the mountain road
that follows a curving
creek
glacial in its beginnings
and the ravine
seeming to sulk

we should have been home by then
not passing time til the tow-truck rescue

with you in the car
protected

from those winds pushing
the gray sheets overhead

and me
tripping through the underbrush
towards the creek

later i stood on its bank not sure it was the wind
making the trees bend
and creak

then hopped from rock to rock
toward the other side
daring the waters
to pull me in

 

What Drives Us

One Of Those Days

woke up on
wrong side of the bed
out of sync
with the world
i’m can’t in a flawed rhythm
but i’m doing okay

One Of Those Days

So Sometimes I Will

life is life
so sometimes i will
be a cloud
drifting by
or just a starry-heart soul
reaching out for you

ancestors
speak through images

their sage counsel infusing
our waking dreams
