You Were Meant to Fly


You open the kitchen door, Mother,
and slip into the woods
after supper.
There is no trail to follow,
but you do not worry;
swarms of stars
wait to greet you
and show you the way.
 
You leave your valuables behind;
masked strangers can have them,
and you will not moan over your losses.
You know you’ll get what you need for
your journey at just the right time.
 
You were meant to fly—
the stars will deal gently with you.

Snuggling

the low moan of notes
coaxing light to come again—
Kokopelli’s flute
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
a handful of stars
snuggling into the treetop
for a long day’s nap

The Sitar Player’s Encore

original
 
 


The sitar player,
to amplify her music,
strikes galactic notes.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
The sitar player
has no words to criticize
even her weak notes.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Hear the sitar moan
from the distant galaxy,
sounding bleak, forlorn.
