Poem – Night Becomes the Day

Standing on the front porch I watch the sun rise over the distant mountains and first light run across the empty fields. Morning wind pushes scattered stalks and coffee steam while bird songs emerge from the tree line. High bulbous clouds assume many colors as the sun reaches higher. Leroy lays at my side sleeping […]

Poem – Daydream

Hours become days and the tasks I desire succumb to the ones I dread and I sit here at the empty table holding a cold cup of coffee and daydream of writing.

Starting off brisk and cloudy, we watched thousands of ducks float […]

Poem – Coffee and Cigarettes

From a series of poems and prose about Joline Cigarette smoke settles between us a soft crackle with each hit between each sip of coffee. An ash falls from yours while we discuss literature, Chaucer, and final exams. Looking back, we were just kids racing toward adults from one credit to the next. Concerned with […]
