Kite Flying

Kite Flying It’s kite flying I enjoy most, running with you through parks. You fly ahead as if scouting the next turn in our path while I shout your name, trying to rein you in. In a sudden sigh you fall, exasperated by my inability to keep up--whether it’s jogging or trying to follow you on flute. ...

Mom was too busy for us, a vice presidential firefly in a field lit with fireworks and sparklers. We turned to Dad when we felt lonely or overwhelmed. He was never too bu...

Re: Iron Ore Miner (1859)

I love the storyteller’s voice. his rhythms and images. What the poem needs is a clear way of flowing the different asides together. Many stanzas feel like standalone short poems, with excellent writing, but they don’t build toward an inevitable close. References are picked up and dropped—like the s...

Re: 2 for the Solar eclipse spanning South America, July 2, 2019

I like the feel, the sparkle of the first version

a court 'n sparkling
'round the moon's silhouette

the engagement ring
leading to bands of brilliance

as two become one
in totality face to face
