Morning Sun

impregnate the earth
whispering and loving its children
grown among the wandering souls
each morning in spring
where it is quiet
where we sit in silence
to behold the morning sun

Sudden Rain

A cloud is born
   From river’s edge
      As rain begins to fly
The sun leaks out
   From building gaps
      As clouds and clear-sky mix
I seek a bridge
   A makeshift roof
      To hide and keep me dry
But then I see
   A mother mad—
      Her boy runs by and kicks
