the unravelling
of secrets

rain clouds
letting go and
moving on

capricious wind
a plastic bag somersaults
across the street

spring departing
a butterfly shadow
on my hand

NeverEnding Story Butterfly Dream




the beach
where she drowned —
angel wings

an empty sea shell
the sound
of Genesis

night chill
a blanket of lights
over the city

November rain
the cat’s last visit
to the vet

summer meadow
a petal becomes
a wing
Whispers November 23, 2016
