Tom Harding Poems
You let go of mystery, now without thinking about it you know ghosts don't exist and whatever else,
Courtyard In Snow
Who tucked the world under new sheets while we slept? How loving, even the cars looks peaceful
The Moon Tonight
Look at the moon skirting the window, what's he looking for? A glimpse of you perhaps
The wind in the trees wakes you, crossing and uncrossing hands against the wall. In the corner the spider weaves in darkness
The world has put itself to sleep under new sheets and for awhile we can allow ourselves to forget a few things,
Sat just before noon drinking coffee on the step I watched a bee maneuver himself into a small hole
In my loneliness I retell myself what I know that for instance there is a shark in the North Atlantic
More snow just when we were looking to get on with our lives,
It's hot today. i hold my hand Against the yellow dry stone wall And flicker the crumbling clay Where the bees have been working.
Sat just before noon drinking coffee on the step
I watched a bee maneuver himself into a small hole
in the cement between the bricks,
casually brushing the dust from his sides
like someone wiping their feet
