SKY VS WATER

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 6:39am

The Sea is tarnished Silver

with an illuminated break above

We have done our best

to support a friend

who hears voices

and is trying out

a new regime

MY LOVELY FRIEND

The Hawk Deck 11:30am

I Saw A Star Of Blue

within My Field Of Red

It came behind a thought

as I languished in My Bed

It struck Me of A Friend

so very dear to Me:

She is starkly beautiful

and lives in misery

Dear Luke:

The Hawk Outpost 5:48pm

Last Night You Showed Me

The Moon

Tonight I Have Seen It

Again

Between Parted Clouds

While I Think Of You —

Your Friend,

Joanna

FOR MARY ELLEN

The Hawk Portico 2:22pm

The waves speak to Me

not as a neighbour would

but as a mother might:

“Shhh, Joge, Shhh

Everything Will Be Al-right “

The birds speak to Me

of the waves beyond

as if the chirps & calls

& singular silver notes

are accent marks

to the surging shoreline

The fog speaks to Me

through the echo of its horn

semi-distant

complimenting

the readied speech

of melodic birds

& the steady rush

of tide

The insects speak to Me

landing on My Pages

as if in observation

of My finalizing penmanship

telling Me to go ahead

“Soak it all in and

let it all out”
