Last Apple



  lonely old widow-
the leaves already fell for
  winter's wind blown kiss

Serving Life

  mashed up dreams
no bones of contention-
  the rest is gravy

  thanks was never said -
I just depended on you
   for your mothers milk

To mom on Mother's Day 2013

1 in 9



  homeless and no work
only thing full is Thankful-
  perhaps tomorrow

  tender virgin wings
inherit the world below-
  first you fall, then fly

Water of Life

   Scotia's peated bogs
flowing down to salty haar

 sire myn usquebae

  crazy could just be  
(not factually proven)
  another point of view

Grizzly Lox

  mighty itswoot dines 
on royal scarlet fishes
  -berries for dessert

(itswoot- Chinnook word for grizzly bear) 



  cold now joyless bones
wonder when the shovel will
  discover we had been


  skating o'er the ice
waltzing cloud-like so sublime-
  they are blown away

Counting time

  blinking neon asks
about the Gideon's book
  lost in the drawer

Out then In

  loveless icy sea-
unzip enough so my soul
  can say goodbye

Adieu Kirk Reeves

trumpet notes drifting
somewhere over the rainbow
as we trundle home

R.I.P. November 7, 2012
