Blossomed apple tree
at grandmother's window –
A star slips
on the edge of a petal
to nowhere

  outside the window
the shrill of crickets all night…
down his cheek
a single teardrop
tattooed          in blues

    wind wakes me
creeps around my bedroom
settles in for the night
       wrapped in my blanket
       i slam shut the window

Crêped shadows
in my forearm skin
thank heavens
for the rippling call
of a hermit thrush

spaceJ. Zimmerman - USA

  Were it possible
to find a dragon
flying inside me
I would hunt large game
running on open ground
