A word & a poem


A word & a poem from my son.

He is the serious poet in the family, and he will be sending me more poems during the year to publish on my blog.

He thanked me for sharing his interview and said,

“Here is a yet unpublished poem for y’all, I hope you enjoy it.”


The passage of light in waves

Under windowsills and through concrete
In and out of time

Such is love, a heart transmits

A stellar cartography of sighs, squeaks

And chirps like a meadow lark,


And is lost unto its satellite,

Receiver occupied and waves bounce

Like the hand of Gemini in a look


And back again, milk chocolate eyes

In the mires of a darkened door from paradise,
Slowly receding final beats of doves.
