looking into the garden at night

dark shadows of trees…
from a high branch the full moon hangs
fruit of wakefulness

night storm

bushes: stooped shadows—
FLASH, as from a camera—
far off thunder, rain

in these times: night in America

framed by clouds  the moon
glides west  hushed  fair-minded  free
unlike the land below

Under the stars and crescent moon

I fall to my knees
to revere night’s hushed beauty.
I rise, legs muddied…

up before sunrise

dawn’s diffusing light
unmasks the night face of things
beauty warts and all

greeting summer’s last full moon

clear moon crowned with clouds
jewel of night    sky’s mistress
with your court of stars

love poem

lightning’s wild beauty
sparks longing    reveals one’s soul
oh night   jet black hair
my sighs   deep thunder rolling
catch me  love  in white-hot arms
