end of long week
getting rid of clutter
and bad energy

topography of dreams
thick and heavy
I carry through the day
like stones in a pocket --

summer visit
an old friend discusses
his speed dating

dead-heading roses
a yellow blossom
for my hair

a background
of blues -
clouds improvising
summer fades to fall
pulling up the blanket
to ward off night's chill
summer's end
a racehorse runs behind its shadow
arum maculatum
in his orange breeches
red dogwood stems

Leaves in the pool
drifting colours
time to pull the plug

pulling up the sheet-
didn't know you had gone til
my calves lost their heat

summer left
without saying goodbye-
waking up
in the cool morning,
my arms holding a pillow
end comes
sweet summer time
autumn draws twilight
goldenrod flutters
its lacy fingers waving
goodbye to summer
a rough sea
breaks on the beach,
a thousand
knots unravelling
in my weary head
between grey depths
of sea and sky
a white sail rides the wind
all night listening
under a canvas skin
to the tail of a hurricane
snail trails
over the bird table -
a fat thrush watches

high grass -
an ant in the jungle
of my leg hairs


herbes hautes -
une fourmi dans la jungle
des poils de ma jambe
nearing my birthday
I meet my uncle 'brother'
for just the first time
blowing in -
dandelion clock's last day
