Gatekeeper

A gift from voices

beguiles small hands that listen

Trees speak their troubles

from the black desert

Woodpecker marks time

tells trees, open your flowers

A lone dog watches

where his master was buried

Leaves begin to fall

from the black desert

Creaking old laughter

keeps us company at night

Sun set, moon risen

And the old listen

to memories of their youth

Their ears have failed them

from the black desert

On a snowy stage

the slip on a patch of ice

Old man's rib bones snap

from the black desert

Old man's rib bones snap

audibly to inner ears

Last sounds are heard there

from the black desert

Tremored hand lies still

as sleep mends disconnections

Breakfast cup spills tea

Breakfast cup spills tea

Darkening pool reflects chilled

Sky swelling with geese

Caution, falling rocks

anxious to journey downhill

Rain gives permission

from the black desert
