Weaker than Water

"In the world, there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong, nothing can surpass it." –Lao Tzu

Love Poem

 For David


Semblance of silence, the cricket portraying the dawn,

Notes turning me over in covers—I reach for you,

Stroke the skin of your lips and chin, your lashes

Still sleeping to the song outside.  I am an early riser


And September air is what I would wish for had I

A second wish—the first would be to relive your sleeping

As I wake, again and again, remembering last night’s

Song, waking to this new morning’s score, the ache


Of evening love still within my bones.
