Fragments and Reminders

Pushing shopping carts filled with my life

Rummaging through fragments and reminders

Is it possible to recycle only the memories of my choosing?

There are so many that I would like to drift away

A Season of Migration

Walking in aimless circles

With half of the yellow sun

A season of migration

Destination anywhere

Journey to the edge of the night

 

Fractured karma

Stolen prayers

Paper moons avoid burning candles

A reunion of familiar ghosts follow me

Sharing stories that can’t be untold

 

Bright lights

An alarm clock sings

A jolt opens my eyes

Looking far into the distance

The road ahead shorter than behind

 

White pigeons

Crimson wings

Muted sirens in the sky

A new companion for the journey

Each day is now alive

Forty-Seven Cranes

Forty-seven cranes

Standing, staring

Red crowns, long legs

Necks outstretched

Wings spread

As a pebble skips through the water

Forty-seven take flight

All that’s left

Are whisps of air

From their departing wings
