nut-brown girls
in shorts and tee shirts
playing hopscotch
     so few are the days
     before growing up

  who was she
that gypsy flower
who left the taste
of strawberries
on my tongue

    interlocking rings
on the anniversary cake
she remembers
the whirl of their prom dance
the circle of their arms

I’ve stayed too long
to think of leaving
thirty-eight years
isn’t time enough
to study the stars

  Old Man's Beard
seeding freely on the wind …
how can one
so open with his feelings
stop his ears to mine?

    easily drawn
into the stillness
between stars …
I look for those spaces
within me
