Nouns

There are different kinds of words
With names the same as you.
Nouns are any thing you name:
A cat, a dog, a shoe,
A city, or a country,
A feeling, or a zoo.
Frequently a signal
Will tell you that a noun
Is coming down the road of speech
Before you hear the sound.
Eight of these are common;
You hear them every day.
They tell you that a speeding noun
Is coming fast your way.
A house, an owl,
The house, my home,
Our house, their owl,
Your house, its home.

Sonnet Beyond Love

Forever in the caverns of my heart
Roam spirits of the loves I leave behind.
Ever will the echo of their touch
Leave patterns of their footsteps in my mind.
With nicks from many partings in the past
Ever will those cavern walls be lined.
Drops of mem'ry build stalagmites of the cast
Of actors in my theater of time.
Ever have my footsteps shunned the paths
