In That Space


In that space

Where the sea,

A sailboat,

A woman,

 Make time

Stand still,

In that place

Where nature

Defies political


In the face

Of raw passion

Few people

Ever live.

Like eating dinner

After the hunger is gone

They chuckled and laughed

Until early dawn,

No one knew

And no one cared

What it was

That they both shared.

Hiding The Moon

Who knows

What blows in the wind

At night,

Flows through minds

In the dark

When the clouds

Are hiding the moon,

Who knows

What creeps from corners

Peeps over the sill

Licks its lips

Plants nasty deeds

Near the weeds in the garden,

At night

When the clouds

Are hiding the moon.
