"Poem for Evelyn" - Evelyn holding her Typewriter Poetry poem at the Pasadena ARTWalk

Poem for Evelyn

"I watched
the birds flee from the Valley in the fire.
Wondered of the butterflies and bees..."

Beneath the Winter lies the Waiting

"the whole of us peering into the earth, listening.

I pick up a stone. Let it warm
in my palms. And when we return
(like familiar bird calls"

Private Drafts (Redux)

"Strong, cool chill
of the early, dilapidated morning

There, in its corner,
lies a song."

a neighborly glance
wrapped in suspicions
finds its way into 'hello'"

myself into existence."

with an addict
in lightning canopy rain."
