1 - New Fall

It rains, and boasts
of snow behind; the wind kicks
wet feet through the leaves.
I toss and turn, bruise myself on the miserable kernel
of my heart in the sheets. Come home
while I still know my name.
I can't lock the doors for fear
the locks will change and this place we made
will be lost
to the fall.

2 - Late Fall

Hard frost, no word.
If it snows, will we be stranded
Everything on the balcony died.
I brought the pots in, jealous
of the sun on their crumpled faces.
The drive to work is all fog.
The grey fields and I
we have both been cultivated. There is nothing
to do but watch
the winter come.
There will be a spring, and we will be here.

3 - Midwinter

There are lights in the trees.
The sky is back,
bright, far and cold.
I made myself a nest in the piles
of clean laundry and dirty dishes,
lay down to wait for you,
curled up tight around my name.
New Home, Alone
Old enough that it can't hurt me. I'm not sure about its rhythms-- the way they come and go made all the stuttering sense at the time, but I'm not convinced.

Can only echo ripari's comment! Thank you so much for the watch though I'm neither writing nor participating much these days. You, however, could prove to be an inspiration! At first glance, love your poetry about the mountains. Must read more closely. I lived in the Taos, New Mexico area for a while and explored Colorado quite a bit, even criss-crossing the mountain route from Tres Piedres, New Mexico to catch business flights from Denver International.  Put pen to paper to describe my own experience of the emotional and physical landscape while there but failed, miserably! :) (Smile)

I am always in support of inspiration! I am in awe of your range of topics, and how clearly and beautifully you put things. I am sad to hear you are not writing much lately, but maybe that will change! I have also not been writing much, and participating even less, but-- sometimes a little bit.

Found your work because you just added me to your watch. I hope you're publishing somewhere besides dA.  Just....what poetry ought to be, your writing.

That's very kind of you! Thank you very much. The depth and breadth of your poetry is glorious. I'm very excited to explore your gallery further.
