What Are You Waiting For?

Orange Fields Are Forever, paper collage, 2023

there’s a time to be earthy
sensual, like a bell
to beat hammers on the moon
and grab
at a crust of lightning
with both hands

that, someone whispers, is
the essence of poetry
a never-ending springtime
of unanswerable questions
the premise of our selves
drifting
through unopened windows
and marching home
to scrub the dishes

a cosmos in a rocking chair
a dance among orange trees

to wingbeats
on cluttered coffee tables

are the dovetails
of mercenary stars

  1. It’s good to read a poem from you again. The lines below are so good!

    that, someone whispers, is

  2. The last three stanzas are excellent..I sip my coffee this morning waiting for wingbeats and the cosmos to fill me..so to dance later today. I will try to be the sequel to such a poetic beginning. 🙂 What a great way to start my morning 🙂 thank you, my friend.
