BETWEEN 


Between
desire and
tomorrow,

one hopes,
wisdom.

EVERY MORNING 


Light like an
angel of air

or snowy owl.
The cold speaks

for itself,
says Winter,

says Turn back,
says Abandon

hope, ye who
would enter.



POET 


You work
the way

you work
whether

that's what
you want

or not.

GHOSTS OF SNOW 


Ghosts of snow
swirling above

open fields.
What they tell us,

something we
already know.



THIS WORLD 


The world
does not

love us
more than

it loves
itself.

See how
it takes

back what
we thought

was ours.
See how

we think
we've lost

what we
were owed.

See how
the world

does not
think like

we do.
The end

is not
the end,

though it
might be

the end
of us.


MAN WANTS 


Man wants his
straight lines.
The earth curves.

UNDERSTANDING THE POET 


What is knowledge
and what wisdom?

What is that blue
and what the sky?

What the bush
and what the bird

which in it hides?



SKY RAGS 


Sky rags,
these

vultures
on

slow wind.

CARE 


Care-
fully
now.

This
word, that
one

mean
something.
More

than
we can
know.



NO LINE 


No line of
sky and field.

Wall of white,
all the light,

no difference.

HEAVY TRUCKS 


Heavy trucks
head east, head

west. Where is
the center,

where the end
to this

madness?



HOME 


where light gathers
as the storm comes on.

SUCH LOW CLOUDS 


Such low clouds,
the grey day.

An old friend
asks for you,

you go. Fog,
wind, miles, you

go. The years
fall away.



WITHIN 


Within
the wanting

a sorrow
that won't

let go.
