A Poem

Not being much of a fisherman
I can only imagine how it feels
to land that trophy bass or muskie.
This morning is the poet’s jackpot-
the motherlode.

A full moon sinking behind western snowcapped mountains
A great howling wind bending trees, breaking branches,
rearranging deck furniture, carrying early spring warmth
to melt…

A Poem

I recall scattering his ashes illegally
by the shady embankment of a small stream
on the Santa Clara reservation-
a remote and pretty enough spot,
still perhaps an unflattering tribute
to the long, intriguing
and somewhat troubling life
of my late father-in-law

A struggling, busy, and hectic time for us
