It changes fast

that marbled sky

from sheets of paste

to curds of gray

and thin blue belts

with heads of steel

connected

by chain lightning.

.

Clouds turn glassy

shadows break

we hasten through

the cracking storm

but pause to lift

our empty cups

to catch the rain

and raise a toast

.

to the wild wind’s

un-leafing

of the fall.

Shower from the east,

magic sunshine in the west

rainbow up her sleeve.

Pieces


When you raise your hands

they’re filled with wind –

     I fly!

Lightning unchains your feet,

you beat thunder

from your chest –

     I dance!

There are no clouds

in your eyes

but they are not rainless –

     I bow.

Birds plant seeds

in your footprints,

watch them grow

into trees

that walk away

and back again.

They weave a sky

 of bark and green

and sun,

and in the puzzle of light

I see your face.
