still pond
reflecting the frozen stars
if only
i could stop counting
on her ignorance

  like the different
rhythms of bird song
in the rain
the symphony that builds
from the few notes we share

    karaoke night –
our dreams laid out
on the sand
soaking lullabies
whispered by the stars

his hands
carve and polish
abalone shells …
coral, fish, palms
and island isolation

  saying good-bye …
the bits and pieces
I forgot to savor
tucked away
in a seashell

    a new year
but I'm not finished
with the old one
all the things I meant to do
all the things I left unsaid
