A blank page frightens me: After the Rains - Winter '98 collection
A desert is not enough word Alexandra
A dirty beach -- here where I stand Amsterdam (Travels with Dad - IX)
a faded dry sky An encroachment of innocent sky
a few feet from the shore an ocean, you said, is like sadness:
A flight of clouds for your thoughts, child An old man paints the ocean
a flower's intensity ancestry
a foundling, this / precocious female child and all these people that i do not know
a gray sky: all day, overcast and he thinks he would know her now:
a leafless tree swaying with borrowed buds And I wanted to fall in love
a lifeguard laments the winter and in her twenty-second year...she would conclude
a man, whose future abruptly and someday in the quiet,
a morning: the freeway's thick stream anonymous
a pebble of somber black, approach
a process: a case of eventual hardening Article
a shaker of salt, half empty, Artifacts
a swallow's flight across pale blue sky Artist
A visit to the Great Wall At first light / he brings in wood

Here on our pier in the evening, Hwy 87 outside Scottsdale, AZ
How far is as you fly  

- I -

I'm marking time on the pavement I'm sorry to see, Mr. Loon that you are here all alone
I am a house unhaunted no longer will you I'm wearing / my summer skin
I am fond of you, in a way...light gleaming In a house / looking down
I can see / the snowcover / of thin possibility In a little while...your tears will dry
I can't recall which / town it was in flight
I carried / Tennyson's words in flight, where high above the earth
I could not live / in a country this small in passing
I could see / in the afterglow of dusk in passing (second time)
I could wander the afternoon / away In the days of the strong
I fear the mischief in her blue-eyed kitten-smile in the embrace of a cold misty sky
I don't want the strength In the midst of the surf's roar in patient retreat
I found your footsteps in the sand in the park
I had not paid attention In the Volksgarten (Public Gardens), Vienna (Travels with Dad - II)
I have found my new-found fascination with the ledge In the years that passed / since I fell to earth
i have no game..i play the games that others in the stage's half-dark silence,
I have questioned / the loyalty / of rivers in winter in this world, i think
I have taken refuge / in the resolution of conflict instinct
I imagined myself forgiven Intricate ceiling patterns
I joined / the Memorial Day caravan Introduced, I imagined her
I know you, you devour attention interlude
I often wondered / if she felt Intricate, spiral-coiled weave of sharp edges
I recall that intensity / of the wind-blown Is there enough time...for the things we each dream as we hurry?
I said goodbye / to Beale Street It pulls my thoughts home
I watched / the winter light die from the bridge It's been a while / since we'd been here
I would miss / this benign rush of nature It's easy to ponder the science
Icarus, later It's only now a short time
Ike flies to Geneva, 1953 I've gotten used to one-sidedness
illumination I've slowly, I thought, gotten used to the rain
i'm in the mood for the summer again

shores, revisited Sojourn
She builds walls "soon", I would say
she counts recollections spaces

She gathers us then specialization
she goes with ghosts again Spring '98 collection - Sketchbook
She holds me gently / in conversation Spring '99 collection - Glass Panes
she intense in her fear, Spring '00 collection - Pervasive Transport
she lays me down gently, her ragdoll sprouting
she never wonders what happened to him Stages
she paints / sunsets with words stoics
she placed her dreams / in my hand Standing alone by the ocean at twilight I watched
She prefers / the safe walls of homes [still life with cups and plates]
She regards her life's colors -  Stones' lengthy silence
she reminds of black coffee: strangers
she soars like a hawk, dangerously circling study in progeny
she sows contemplation Summer '98 collection - Under a Sky
she stands, resolute Summer '99 collection - Vacancies
she turns her back, a signal to me Summer '00 collection - Signs in the language of traffic
She was like / Joni Mitchell Summer evening
she wears her melancholy well summer shore
She's the goddess on the terrace overlooking the beach Sunday
She's the soft sultry kitten Romping at play on the beach Sunset Beach
Ships Passing sunsets

They fear their own flight two shores, apart...a river joins them together
They look almost perfectly normal

Yballe, Raechelle - Favorite Poets & Poetry you said, chasing sunsets will blind you
Yet You, that old man who paints upon the seashore
Yo, Muse! Pull up a stool as I whine and complain You welcome strangers to hallways
You can't / said my sister / bound buildings / like Superman You're bound to have heard of the Horrible Girl --
You haunt me...thief of my thoughts your crowd with their casual sense
You make this look easy...soaring on nothing
