Four Fourteen

  
The April sun

stretches fingers 

through leafless tree tops

its warmth welcome

within the tiny patch

you chose to stand in

free from shadow.

Green grass shines

bright in the spring sun

it ripples with the breezes

while the crimson fleck

of a cardinal

flits through the corner

of your eye.

change is subtle

slow most times

less often it arrives

a cataclysm of words

people, places, things,

cutting like concertina wire

as you scramble over

cut, bloodied, tired

that tipping point reached

you run

slow over the muddy fields

and far away

to a place unseen

by human eyes

pristine, unspoiled,

clean,

without the water

to wash it all away.

Egomaniacs eagerly eating

Pillowy Parisian pastries.

Four Nine

  
The murmur

of frog’s song

and duck’s babble 

from the wet heart

of the swamp

reminds us

of the everlasting

change, 

the triskele we see

in everything

If we look close enough.

Four Ate

  
The dust laden wind

across the high desert

cracks lips 

and exposed skin

like baked mud

around the waterholes

slowly receding

green gems

in the red dirt.

4 Seven

  
Protein drink explodes

upon the sidewalk;

tragedy comes

in many guises

this Thursday morning.

Four 5

  
Inuit see clearly

the aput

And the slow suffocation

accompanying it

if the wind could pierce it

you could breathe

the icy air

far away from

the bloody brush strokes

glistening upon the pack ice

left by the nattiq

dragged from their aglu

by the ever hungry 

ever silent 

ever searching Pihoqahiak.

Four Four

Cold bites downupon your bare neck

Spring seems in retreat

as the winds whip snow

across the smothered

grass.

Daffodils bow their heads

waiting for the sun

to warm it all away.
