City Waking Up In Rain

The liquid gray shroud
enfolds rhythmic
water color ribbons
artificially bleeding
across its drowsy
blacktop expanse.
The splashing, mirrored
metronome pulse
of a sleeping city
waking to
umbrella anonymity.[1]

Whiskey Colored Dreams

 Curled up on
a park bench
his empty life
clutched close
in his hand
he dreams his
whiskey-colored dreams;
where the sun
never rises from
the shadows
and his life
is always full.[1]

 Snowflakes shaken out –

a softly sewn patternless
quilt of purest white

One limb hanging down
into the river’s pathway
changes everything

Covered in winter’s
branches, moon rises from a
bed of soft gray clouds.

Bare gray branches etched
into the blue winter sky –
wind carries crows’ calls.

Cat at Spring’s window –
ears twitch, turn; nose sniffs
chirping air under sun’s warmth.

sweltering night lit
by that bright cotton ball moon
velcroed to the sky
