on the black asphalton the black asphaltmy footsteps leave no trace --a Roman milestone in the grass
the old citadelthe old citadelechoes with birdsong –a green forest
a white cata white catin my pathgood luck?
The full moonthe full moon —just another lightin a crowded sky
Just above the cloudsJust above the clouds,at 500 mph —the stars do not move
dusty chessboarddusty chessboard the old master yieldsto his grandson
Gathering Darkthe sun has a smileangry - weeping - red passionthe sky wears a grin
