the past and future

the past and future
curl along their edges, so
that every now and

then, you can take a peek, feel
the seductive anchoring

you drop anchor with

forward movement is

we lean heavily

we lean heavily
on the future, and
the future leans
back
with a
familiarity
of an old adage
sow the wind,
reap the whirlwind
.
power up the
launcher, we will
need some throw
lines in place

between sunset and dusk,

between sunset and dusk,
i carry our memories
into the woods and
to the lake, let
them soak in
the darkening
waters before
folding
them in
half
so
that we
can
share
everything
this equally
anchor roots,
annual scars, our
most vulnerable
therefore responsive
layers, and each new
branch, learning to tap
our rhythm across the sky

after awhile, it was clear

after awhile, it was clear
that no one was going to
lose their clothes today,
and when the rain came
down just past six, the
colorful fabrics clung
a little more
snuggly, anchoring us
to the solid ground,
to life, to exuberance,
to the bewitching rapture
of reveling

for a prelude-

for a prelude-
to-an-afternoon-
nap, darkness
should not
swim for so
long
. there
is nothing
that quite
primes stillness
as Ira, who lifts
words into
kaleidoscopic
flags, with no need
for anchors
to secure them
