With You

unravel
stark thoughts crashing into the shore in your mind

summer weather creeping its way into spring

kissing ether, ground firm in the dirt

love fills every corner of your heart

as light staves off the dawn of night

XII

  
Rolling plains,

Mind wide open,

Spring sky settled like an endless gray ocean.

The City Wakes

Street corner painted in color,
Apollo’s light kisses the clouds.
Each step full of history,
Beginnings, ends, drunk lovers,
Keep hold.

Every morning all is born anew,
The streets are alive for you.
