When I'm Gone

I'll leave a song
on the lips
of the moon
to remind you of me
when I'm gone

someone left
a poem
in the sky

Fools Gold


fools gold —
the forever
you promised
before you turned
and walked away

.

slow blues —
the everything
I’d give
for just one night
with you

.

all the lives
I could have lived —
magnolia breeze

Somewhere

somewhere
between longing
& loneliness
the piercing cry
of a gull

'Not wanting...'

not wanting to drown
in the shallows
of this world
I become
the robin's song

'Painting My Day.'

painting my day
alive
with dreams ---
the rose coloured
curve of her smile

whiskey moon

whiskey moon ---
how many tears would it take
to drown in

'Knowing'

this 'knowing'
I have
of you
is beyond words ---
moonlit river

Dreams

a white butterfly
dancing
through a cloudless sky -
more and more
my dreams are filled with you

Music

the music of your presence
lingers
long after
you have gone...
autumn sun
