Fluid Emotions

Fluid Emotions

ripples through time

blow gentle breezes

blow through my mind,


Cloudburst intentions

scatter like rain

enriching my pastimes,

or drowning my pain,


Silently stalking

rumors and myths

encountering dream lands,

close scrutiny had missed,


Sight sees, hands grasp

My mind merges with today

30 July 1977. California.


Thoughts 1977

Strange, it seems

to live, to love

to dream dreams,


Stranger yet

my mind withdraws

my heart forgets,


Strangers, we are

lost in life’s mist,


That’s stranger by far…

14 May 1977. California.
