Poetry / Poets / Writers / Writing


Air is wide by the shore
hovering breezes summon
a spiral sea high tide
outside my porch,
two bluejays lock
on rings of leafy trees,
as Tiger and Lily
cat walk obstinately
each so sure of themselves
as in an ardent fire dance,
quietly lost by dragonflies
and flaming lady bugs
near the smoking river
under a smoke cloud moon,
a fox is silently hiding out
near shadowy bushes
thistles and tall dunes,
the town cafe is closing,
a sax is heard
in the distance
and a motorcycle driver
in a James Dean shirt
with a poem in mind
moves the handlebars
along the ocean roadway
in green umbrella’s
last light rain.
