Steps

Poem By Frank O'Hara

i was watching her
at streak of moon
wrapping her claws
around tiny branch
tuck her head quietly
as shadow pass by

blink of an eye; gone
did she fly unnoticed?
fallen leaves knows where
that feather came from
or unaware like mine
so many more to come

... I Could Laugh

i know-
you won’t join me
beneath the moon
to taste ferments

I Remember

street lights are still lit up
as she fills my coffee cup
with same greeting everyday
"how's your mom doing today? "

...Are You Really

i open my window
to let my soul
wander
in search

...You Amaze Me

more... i heard
your passion
pigmenting new desire
as sweet as grapes

But My Eyes

… twirling key
on my hand
reminds me
of you, gone

After The Rain

certain stillness up above
harmony after raindrop
birds start singing again
trees dripping wet; clean
