Tell Me

what happens to a dream deferred
does it dry up upon waking
like a stream in the desert
or does it fester and decay like meat

Be Gentle With Me

come to me gently like petals
falling in a gentle breeze

heal my dreams like balms

Ever Since

ever since we met behind the sheets of our eyes
in every breath I take in every step of the day
your presence lingers on the breast of my soul
and I feel the rhythm in my heart

What Happend?

what happened
to the dream of the dawn?

is it deferred


Grandma used to say:
where the pools are bright
that’s where they are deep
and where the hawthorn blooms

After The Rain

I’m still here after the rain
tending the tomatoes
pushing black pepper seedlings
back into the ground with these fingers

For J.

between us
lies a desert where prayers of David
can force a rose to spring from the sand

Love Knots

after long walks on village lanes
after being in moonlit nights many market days
he showed her how to make a love-knot

A View From My Window

from my window on Ashen Avenue
netted with a frost-bound spider-web
I can see a sparrow in a hurricane
searching for a way....with a head full of dreams

Roses Of Your Love

my love like a rose
unfolds gently beneath
your loving touch
becoming a gem in your arms
