what would it be like

to float above, seeing the earth

as flyers do –

wings soundless, soaring…

worries 

caught in stalks

of corn, drying in the sun

questions reverberate

as I lie, restless

among twisted sheets.

Rising, I open

the shades to windows

streaked with rain.

morning presses its face

against clouds, lightening.

The note he seeks lies buried

among other notes, some stapled together,

the years collapsing.

Scraps lay scattered like his thoughts –

drifting into piles, getting lost

beneath therapists’ schedules.

Two cars sit

side by side in the garage, with another

in the drive. He asks his doctor, “Can I

do emergency driving?”

“No.”

“Maybe my dermatologist will say yes.

It’s in my legs…”

At 90.7,

where is the path to clarity?

Does it follow the path of love?

above the surface

colors blaze, then fade

like sparks

from a campfire

as the white time

draws near

 

suspended

over mirroring depths

chill winds approach,

fingering

leaves from branches,

their stories grown cold

emotions fray, strung

on filaments, tossed

by winds of worry

they land? in whose

hands are they secure? 

 

suspended 

I long to let go,  to be

lifted

into the clarity of blue skies,

at rest with the clouds

air moist, coccooned
in layers of voices

mist rising over the lake

in the balance
