Local Poets, Local Inspiration!

The Santa Cruz Weekly chose my poem, Sparkle in this week's Local Poets, Local Inspiration section, check out the link below. Here's the poem:


At the edge--
            spotted stones
                        and roiling kelp.
The day facets me in its diamond.
            Wind-chimes are silent,
Buddha’s stone head bows.

A gap in the fence could tell--
                                       mouth opens,
               closes on a dahlia,
on a rosebush stripped to thorns.

A beheaded sunflower stem
holds a hummingbird’s silhouette.
Bees comb and primp the blonde sky.

            Waves fall down--
spotted stones
and roiling kelp.
        Shadows slink and slip
with the earth’s music.
                    With a mouth full of stones, I sing.

Local Poets, Local Inspiration
