Dreams that Call


Do you hear the dreams that call,
Dreams your hands still hope to find?
Stand in wonder of them all,
Pillow them within your mind.
In the shell of your old life
You could stand until you die,
But it’s time to slip away
With the hawk that rides the sky.
Onward through the wind and fire!
Push yourself, do not give up!
You will find your heart’s desire
Waiting in a brimming cup.

A Way Out

Debris floats in a backyard fountain.

 

Trying to breathe in this place,
close to the source of my grief,
while coins thrown in the wishing well
are glimmering and turning—
such madness!
I feel my right foot slip, and then my left,
something tightens in my chest.
Be still, my heart!
You will find a way out!

Fountain

Photobucket
Plaza de Armas, Zacatecas, México
 


With the same longings
people and pigeons gather
where the fountain flows.
 
In the quiet hours
stars slip into the waters—
those who drink them shine.

Sizzling

heat-tolerant plants—
immigrants rest till nightfall
then slip farther north

on the door a fly
waiting for the right moment
to slip through a crack
