Eden Called And Recalled

Displaced pines seek
Far mountains,
Cone by cone--
Contrive to climb
Once more from
This valley floor-- as
Statice pushes
Purple ribbons
To the sea.
A daisyring,
Remembered in a bee,
Evokes a dance
Above its hive.
By chance and such
Devices we survive.
It's what we do, yes,
I'll dance with you.

She Says

She says,
"Families are grown
like gardens."
She is right.
One seeks siblings
Scattered across
Divides of time,
Land and sea.
Days supply possibility,
What seeds are.
This garden
Grows around a star,
And I am  more, under light,
Real in a way
I had not
Been before.
She is right.

Keep This Coupon

At the window
Overlooking lawn
You have your
Mandarin collar on
And remark,
"It's a journey
You know."
We walk together
Through a house
Empty except
For a cold tea kettle
In the kitchen.
Whatever else
I seem to see
In this dream,
I shall always
Love the way
Dust looks
On copper.
