Shower from the east,

magic sunshine in the west

rainbow up her sleeve.

White Night

.

And there was such a midnight

when the air took on a glow

and the sky began to loosen

and the dark was lit by snow

and the woods were sooner filled

with a whispering gypsy light

that danced across my footprints,

then swaddled them in white.

Magician

(from 1982)

.

He removes his cape

and tall silk hat.

With the touch

of his wand

she turns

into a white dove,

cooing.

 .

It’s easier to leave now,

after the encore.

Goodbyes aren’t real

but magic is.

(from 1995)

.

Old gypsy spun around and winked

then brewed a special potion

of swirling colors for the dawn

to fling upon the ocean.

 .

And there I saw horizons dance

and ripples in the sky,

the rising of an ancient tide,

a glint in the cosmic eye.

 .

I heard the heartbeat of a soul

in currents from afar,

the drumming of an answering wave,

the splash of a shooting star.

 .

I felt the rapture of the deep,

saw gold dust in the brine,

the yin and yang of sandcastles,

the hide – the seek – the find.

 .

Old gypsy laughed and disappeared,

her trance broken at last

and as the sun rose in my breast

t’was Love whose spell was cast.
