fog flood

An island
Isolated by
A fog flood.

surfer wave

A surfer
Held in the sea’s hand.
Kept safe?  Crushed?

Love gives what one another takes,
And takes what one another gives.
And in the giving back and forth,
Such his and her love always lives.

The middle
Of brick, mortar, stone –
Oasis.

The traffic lights where strangers meet,
The grocery store where neighbors greet,
The colleges where learners flew,
And airport where the world comes through,

A café’s corner table, where
The only other sitting there,
As if the world did not exist,
Your lover in romantic tryst.

A mountain
Of wrinkle-valleys;
Whiskered peak.

The sun grows warmer day by day
As if the earth was sick,
Afflicted by a fever’s rise
Like flames crawl up a wick.

The deer are lazier, but heat
Is not the only cause.
New mothers or mothers to be
May in their wand’ring pause.

Close to her hidden fawn, doe stays
And pricks her ears to hear
The tiniest of frightened cries
Through summer’s atmosphere.

And those with swollen bellies yet
Have chosen where they’ll nest.
Like trucks with heaviest of  loads,
They’re slow and quick to rest.

The deer, beneath the cedars, lie
On hill just ‘cross the way.
And when I first step out my door,
Not one is on display.

And then like recent rains brought floods,
The deer begin to pour
Like water down the gentle slope
For what they know’s in store.

They follow me to where I feed,
Since work for grass they scorn.
I help them in their laziness
With just a little corn.

Our symbiotic link is sweet:
I, in their stress, console.
And from both doe and fawn I need
Their beauty for my soul.

The best thing
When back’s to beauty –
A switchback.

There is a people – oh, how big the heart! –
A heart that swells like a primeval ooze
Till others not as blessed must take a part,
Forced by an overflowing they don’t choose.

And, oh! how wonderful those hearts now feel
That others, too, have done the good they deemed
With what the righteous from them rightly steal –
Not steal, but take by all the plans they schemed.

And, oh! how those blest hearts now fill with pride
That theirs the nobler way, the higher road,
That they, a cut above the baser side
Have helped man’s load by adding to his load.

It seems they think it some great human feat,
A merit in the doing that they dream
Not by their back and boon, but from their seat
By forcing others into what they scheme.
