the horse on the mountain. 405 more words

My Poems


Bee-eating bird.

In the dark of your trees.

Night of skies slurred

and tongue-tied air.


Three drunks perpetuate

motions of wine and grief, blurred. 60 more words


A-Z Challenge: Federico Garcia Lorca

The Gypsy and the Wind

The starless silence, fleeing
from her rhythmic tambourine, 271 more words

The field

of olive trees

opens and closes

like a fan.

Above the olive grove

a foundering sky

and a dark rain

of cold stars. 44 more words


“The boys, how eyeless

& how wordless they,

who cover themselves with smiles

like curlicues of feathers.”

-Federico García Lorca
