cornered

he pulled and panicked
at the black blanketing swelter
of his fears
eyeballs stretched
bulging throat voiceless
snarling mouth slivering

Paper Boat

Soggy paper boat rain-beaten on its side,
Child’s toy, shuddering under clattering drops
That bring back again echoes of childish squeals,
How he must have loved his little paper world
Buoyant a while upon the puddle of his oblivion,
Not knowing the unsatisfying joy he felt
As he pushed with a finger, a stick.
But there it was, not moving, not free as he wished,
Rain pelted, harassed, like his child’s mind
Prodding, perplexed out of its depths.

Hectic waves

Hectic waves,
crosscurrents heave –
the sun in its prime
a heady brilliance –

agitated undertows,
the depths of our seas,
unconscious:
that impulse or desire
sea or psyche hold
in dream-mystery
moving and moving us.

The young intellect

Suddenly today
I found myself awaking
From loss in thought
And felt ashamed.

I should have caught this moment,
This awakening, I felt, long ago.

Annunciation

Mary image, kneeling
With half averted face, listening
To Gabriel as he brings you
Knowledge that the womb of your aspiration
Has conceived of a child greater than the universe

Something There Is About Creation

Something there is about creation
That I must learn to understand,

That if I should create something
There is a special bond between us,
