    winter wind
    deepening
    our divide

     

    migrating geese
    awakening the ache
    inside me

    pulling corn silk
    under starlight
    a single firefly

     

    first blossoms
    float upon clouds
    old pond

    defensive dating
    unspooling avatars again
    and again

     

  • Beverly Acuff Momoi

    during chemo
    he plays the ponies
    rarely speaks ---
    she shops the QVC channel
    looking for miracles


     
    getting her affairs
    in order, to make it easier
    for her daughter
    knowing nothing
    can make it easy


     
    the sky drizzles grey
    and tulle fog settles in the valley's
    every crevice
    just a little out of focus
    my last picture of you

  • Beverly Acuff Momoi

    mid-winter
    snow drifts reach for eaves
    in that long pause
    she knows
    he will not make it


     
    the cat retreats
    to the corner of the closet
    deep within the dark
    how often
    I choose silence

    he's so controlling
    he wants to pick out
    her next husband

     

    his temporary
    blackout - her years
    of terror flashbacks

    autumn nightfall
    my notebook full
    of first drafts

     

    moon over water
    a song
    from the other shore

     

    lifting off the lake
    the wild geese leave
    me behind

     

    come back sparrow
    I promise to make
    lots of crumbs

     

  • Black Ice

    black ice
    I drive over
    the moon


    vape smoke escapes
    her pale white face


    early morning
    the prisoner’s breath lingers
    above barbed-wire


    tire chains left behind
    on the narrow highway


    Christmas shopping
    she tries on
    another necklace


    gold light shimmers
    across the water


    breaking news
    in the old t.v.
    drifting clouds

    trying to sleep
    in the hospital lobby


    smell of coffee
    I take another bite
    of a salad


    strangers walking briskly
    through the garden


    receding
    deep into the night
    sound of sirens


    seagulls calling
    above dim streetlamps

    dementia . . .
    waves washing away
    footprints in the sand


    migratory patterns
    in the wings of a butterfly


    check-mate 
    my neighbor gives me
    another cookie


    new cracks form
    in the marble steps


    heavy rain
    sunlight pierces through
    broken thoughts


    solving the last word
    of a crossword puzzle


    early morning . . .
    I light another journal
    on fire


    headlines trickle down
    a vacant driveway

     

  • Bottom of the 9th

    bottom of the 9th
    drops of moonlight
    on the pitcher's face

    strangers huddled together
    without names

    fly-out
    a baseball player
    waves at the moon

    under bright lights
    the constant hum of conversation

    a hushed silence
    after the pitcher throws
    another strike

    SMACK! the baseball disappears
    into the crowd

    sudden downpour
    a thousand pairs of hands
    clapping

    birdsong every now

    perfect storm...
    sounds of relief
    the day after
