C.D. Sinex Poems

Be Still (Pantoum)

We watch the day fade slowly into night,
in silence standing by this open gate.
Afraid, as if to speak would chase the light.
I have to go; you know it's getting late.

The Hidden

Carried in,
in the dead of night,
like some smuggler's load.
Lights dimmed, the curtains drawn:

Autumn Equinox (Haibun)

Autumn equinox.
The hills are nearly silent—
A hermit-thrush calls.

Green Street

for six years
it was the world

the perfect venue


Everything we thought we understood,
somehow vanished right before our eyes.
Gone in an instant, the bad, the good…
everything. We thought we understood
