these foothills
Luke Jun 2016
these foothills
rolling in pine and
grassland meadows,
where silvery lupine
follow the melting snow,
hint of the mountains to come
in spiny crags that
catch a cumulus pocked sky
cottonwood tufts rain
this day after solstice

atascada /\ stuck
Luke Jul 2015
entre un soplo
y poesía que llene
el cielo como estrellas
esta luna atascada

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

between breath
and poetry that fills
the sky as stars
this moon, stuck.

what is not broken
cannot heal
and it has held me together

I'm a hollow tree this night.
Defiant to the moon.
Bare.

Where is Spring in me?
Where the heart of these woods?

the wind scrapes
these walls
taunts my bones
to dance bare

what can I give...
Luke Jul 2019
what can I give
but love?
tears and anguish
have no currency
in the end
prayers cross to another realm beyond my scope
where ash and dust
wait
what can I give,
my friend?
what can I give?
