Again
fall has her way—
tearing down summer’s work.
From my window I watch the geese
escape.

“Getaway” is actually three syllables, so I used ‘away.’

Away
from my window
birds dig for roots and worms.
In the deep grass, the cat readies
to pounce.

Demise
of summer brings
brings memories of youth,
watching from classroom windows as
geese fly.

I took the liberty of changing “I done” to the less colloquial ‘I’m done.’


I’m done.
The woodshed’s full,
the garden’s been put to bed.
In the distance the mountain snow
grows close.

Grows close--
the static charge
creeping like a lit fuse
through a room full of TNT--
in lust.

Jaded
from all these years.
Hardened by life’s lessons.
Wisened enough to know I’ve learned
nothing.

Zero.
Not negative.
Center of integers.
Fresh-hatched egg of the bottom floor.
A start.

Of youth

My pockets are full, but my soul
empty.

Empty
until next spring,
the garden sits and waits.
The seed catalogs can’t come soon
enough.

Friends passing on the street;
neither question, nor answer has
meaning.
