A Giant Loss

Snow travels lightly
But falls hard, stuck there, stranded,
Until the spring thaw.

Dry brown leaves cluster
beneath the barren branches
of a fruitless tree.

Empty plastic cups,
hot dog wrappers, peanut shells:
waste of a season.

On the Death of Bobby Bonds

The wind tells the sails
the secret of its power
in its dying breath.

Unknowable messages
whispered from father to son.

A still August lake,
like a smooth mirror, reveals
yourself to yourself.

Perhaps you're a stone,
scratched, flawed, dull, dark, dense, heavy,
sinking slowly down.

Or, like a prism,
the light shines on you and you
make it brilliant.

Autumn awaits you.
Ripples inch you back and forth.
Nothing is resolved.

My Last Joe Morgan Comment

Men who openly
Flap their wings like mad chickens
Don't care what you think.

Rickey plays winter ball

Snowballs tossed by kids
An old man watches them pass
And keeps on walking

Cactus League

Saguaros, arms raised,
Reach for the desert spring sky
Dreaming, "I got it!"

Rockies in winter
Covered in a snowy fog
Future is unclear.
