Shells This Morning

Sea shells
Doubled like clams, oysters, mussels,
One for each ear,
where I provide
the sound
of the sea
in and out
of spirals
circling air
through chambers
that  open
and meet


fog and rain this morning
jane in
does she see the sun -
I’m so glad she calls
so we can share the fun
of twirling
each other’s weather
on fingers
circled in gold
strung to the heart
in grace we mold



Flight Paths

rain falls outside the window
in the fog and gray light
nothing to see but the tree
nestling, snuggling, wanting to come in -
I trim it periodically,
leaning out, with my shears,
so the leaves don’t bruise
and crush on glass,
so it doesn’t
die like a bird
when it mistakes,
this flight,
for the next -



how does the fog do that
just clear
first nothing
then the tree is near
and then I see across
gliding into trees
spread up the hill,
leading my eyes
like a painting
to a focus
diagonal in intent,
something to climb,
inside, out
and outside, in -
