David's Blue Lily

My eyes hunger
for sights of innocence
 and simple beauty

and for
perspectives that might
feed a soul

I am enchanted by
the way eyes
feast upon the world 

with or without prejudice
soft-eyed or sharp

I entertain these modest needs
and confess
I am a sucker 
for that which 
 eyes need

The Watering Hole

Let us not argue
about the shape of color
at this watering hole. 

Shapes change. Colors shift.
And we will be gone
soon enough.

Touring Back Yards

The Jasmine is beginning to bloom
just in time to distract me

from wherever it was
I thought I was going.

We are awash in colors here.
Greens and reds wear magenta bibs.

Nothing more need be said.
When history is written in a moment,

Post hole yield or Rune Stone?

runes like this
and lovers of dirt
find each other
as if by accident.
