Lonely Places, Quiet Songs

Another effort at mixing photography, music and poetry…

The photo above was taken from Pacific Beach at sunset, on the same day I took the photo of the birds flying South… seen above.

Coldness, In Quiet Places

Written on February 21, 1999

in quiet places,
lost in deep reflection.

shadows before me,
distance between subtle changes,
chances misbegotten.

with sorrow,
on thoughts of
what might have been,
a change for want of a certain space.

In time,
forsaking all emotion,
like a harness that clings
to the obvious distance,
between two points of light,
like a star, pointed to by a flashlight.

And searching for a star
with a flashlight,
knows its futility,
as I ponder
in this coldness,

this quiet place
of grays, hues and
long forgotten memories.
