Double Star




When the day at last draws to a close
ever so sweetly

As shadows lengthen
and the warmth of sun
gives way to the cool of night

When hearts find new focus
as minds turn from ambition and drive
to study and reflection

One becomes two
and two becomes shimmering
sparkling
shining

Spark, Flicker, and Flame



Spark
flicker
and flame
 
The light shines brightly
on these two faces
called in from the cold
and darkness

Thawing twenty frozen toes
and twenty quivering fingers
by the warmth of their passion

Outside the Lines




There is an age
I’m told
where cavalier and careless
naturally give way to restraint and reserve

Where conformity is prized
above all
and singularly unique
becomes a relic of a reckless past

There is an age
of submission
of falling in line
and gleeful surrender

And yet, here I am
fast approaching 60
still heedless
still rash

Disregarding boundaries
and forever
coloring outside the lines

Here in April




Some will walk barefoot today
while some will feel wind on the face
and be happy

Some will bare chest and legs
warmly
and some will shade eyes from the brightness of day

But here in Minnesota
in resignation
and despair

Here in April
it snows
