The Hours Between

sandpipers-tina-obrien

the hours between
rising and
the falling breath
a journey to rose
a sandpiper’s tango
the to and fro
O poet, you –
gone seconds
across the room
in your other season

*To be read down then back up.
*You may want to pause in different places when reading back up.
*It will make sense the way the poet intended if viewed on a larger screen than a watch or even an iTouch or phone.

for this is everything
a sleeping moon
the dew on
bare feet of
wander on
the never stop
of mists
by the shore
that silence
upon us
that
I have loved
that it be you

*To be read down, then back up.
*May need a large screen.
*You might find you pause in different places when reading back up, giving new meaning to my down/up poems.

of gold and ruby
a forest
on the autumn moon
and
in the telescope
there was an awful wind
when
leaves were falling
from that vast distance
all night as
we raked
and
raked
the yard that was
overflowing
with tipping moon

*To be read down, then back up.
*You may find you pause in different places when reading back up.
*You may need to read on a large screen.
