The Way Of Coyote

The Way Of Coyote He lopes through the marsh to the edge of a neighborhood, crosses an open field of stubble like an illegal immigrant, tail down, head low, sweeping side to side, wary, halting and crouching at intervals. Middle of the day, a daring venture for what purpose? New territory where he'...

Re: Long Hair Named Desire

I really like the title. I think you mean, "reached down to the knees" or "reached to the knees" Up makes sound as if the hair is growing from the ground up.

Antlers

Antlers Crisp morning, sheets whipping in the wind, they follow the street jauntily. Everything dazzles, invading their heads as if they are antenna tuned to the slightest nuances in atmosphere. Clickety, click, like the taps we put on our shoes in junior high, to be cool-- the sound of ourselves--...

I think Bob has given you something to think about. I, too, don't use enough imagery. I'm working at it.

Re: Ode to My Old Age

Like this very much. I kind of want a different end, but maybe this one is enough.

Maybe:

as if old age
wanders over a hill

to pick a certain flower
and never returns

Red, Red Moment

Red, Red Moment It doesn't last; what does? My light fading. So much I missed while the stars blaze for centuries, millenniums. Somewhere at the center a star shines too faraway for it to know of existence. Darkness thick as ignorance surrounds it, would snuff it out like a candle between its callo...

horizon of eyes

horizon of eyes

dark dismal morning
20th of October
no one waking on their own

the candle struck
by the fire of exuberance
only the foolish can see

too early for others
the blight of dormancy
like a pandemic

that has stopped hearts
a breath away
from a flash of light

Return of the fox revised

revision Return of the Fox I haven't seen him, but he's there. Crows caw at every turning leaf. A smell of apples rotting. White clouds like shadows folding in and out of themselves. It was not his intent to impart any trace of foreboding. He left home with no ill-will, hopes to return before snowfa...

Re: Today is my birthday, I am turning 65

Happy Birthday, Siva!

But I think Bob and I are the seniors, at least, age wise.
I'm 70. Not sure how old Bob is. I don't thin Ken is even close, but I could be wrong.
