displaced

In science
displacement seemed so logical
a measurement of volume.
Yet ever since you left this world,
it has been near impossible to measure
just how many lives you touched
your volume immense
your displacement eternal.

stirred

I live between
the creek and the tracks.
One moved by man
the other by nature.
And I in the middle
am stirred by both
on restless nights
when even the stars glide by.

present

Not rushing into the future
as the past seems to arrive
before I've even finished
the present.

capacity

Leaves fall, rain dances,
snowflakes flurry,
falling granules of sand.
May this life be lived to capacity
before the final grain lands.

resonating

He pulled on my soul
with each strum of the string.
I before him a resonating note
wanted no more than to resound
in endless melody.

This life a cup
I endlessly drink
sipping, savoring, gulping
eagerly devouring its goodness
before my days consummate.

Zakopane

Snow covered mountain
awash in the light of the moon
rendering our torches unnecessary
on a crisp night of crunching boots
and seamless laughter.
