The Windy Peninsula

Palos Verdes

 

The Windy Peninsula

 

Where I began between an eclipse and full moon

 and the peacocks at dawn did not sound very much

    like peacocks because, well,

       who’s ever heard a peacock?

 

Where the coyotes run in the canyons,

   while dogs fetch in the fields

      and every sound from street level

          is diffused by light and dreams

 

Here, I awoke to a racoon in the garbage,

   again to children on the swings,

      at last to fireflies, whose blinks

        I mistook for my own

 

Here, the pines drop like rain,

    and we sweep, sleep up the night

       for the day to burst out in sun

          again
