  81.     

Washington Square Park in Fall

Washington Square Park
on a fall afternoon
cool breeze blowing
‘neath a water blue sky.

Kids on a concrete hill
riding skateboard bikes
frolic on the jungle gym
laughing children’s shrieks.

Young girl on a park bench
in a blue-jeaned sneakered pose
scribbles in a notebook
and dreams some faraway thought.

Black youth by the garbage can
rusty red bucket dented
mumbles to the passersby
disjointed joints for sale.

White youth tossing pigskin
in his stylish sports fatigues
tanned and bronzed like summer
muscles rippling on the green.

The middle-aged Joes play chess
black/white castles on the block
they send their dreams to battle
on ordered squares inert.

Old men sit in patience
cross their legs and heave a sigh
watching leaves go tumbling past them
like a memory

drifting…

  82.     

Zip-Locked

Denial
is the plastic I wrap around my heart
to protect it from freezer-burn.

  83.     

A Prayer for the Dying

Every day admit me
Please
Into the portal of the
Divine
Allow me to feel
The sublime majesty of life
To know
The sanctity of relationship
To touch
The beauty of Earth
Breathe into this poor undeserving frame
An immortal telling
A lasting consequence
Give me the power
To see
To believe
To dream
Forever.

  84.     

Ago (haiku)

In halcyon days
waves upon a kindred shore
you and I believed
