Pink Flower



Actions speak louder than words, but oh… they are sweet.

I received them in my willing mouth—victim to their honey.



Build a foundation, the nuts and bolts.

A sturdy-soldier for the battle of perfect humdrum—


Call me a pink flower!


Apples in a wire basket by the window,

Mother’s blue plates – memories of Easter’s birth on their rims,

Fresh bread rising in the oven,

Your heart’s beat, like a goat, resolute.


Seed planted in the heart – Oh Father!


Despite it all, and a dream, a house of cards.


Smoke blowing from its chimney a chicory wind.


See the Queen of Hearts, crying, at the window

…that wants to be.

SONG (a poem)


The morning arrives late,

and evening, early.

All of the in-between-time – 

Countless efforts, vision and space,


The maintenance of –



To carry her, delicately,

(fragments to a solution),


loses me—

A windmill.

A viola.

A song in the wind.


Only the sea and a one-eyed-gull

to understand.
