New discoveries
Await those who look for them
In a book's pages.

Final Breath



Solemn vows of tempestuous light

Overshadowed by songs of time

A place where the rain falls softly

On crimson roses fallen behind

The kiss of dew set upon the green

A vision in the warmth of a fire

A guardian covers the sky with clouds

Granting hearts with care's desire

Pathways to tread drowned by the sea

A forgotten past that closed with your eyes

Breathe your last existing…

Fifteen years ago
He was a little baby.
Happy birthday, son!

glad the monkey's gone
my back feels much lighter and
my thoughts are my own

Lights along the roof.
Decorations in the trees.
Christmas in the yard.

A pencil drawing:
An intricately detailed
Sample of his art.

Why do my feet hurt
And my eyes burn and head ache?
Not sick - Black Friday!

Someone who likes sex
With boy and girl buffalo?
Bison-sexual.

My phone's in pieces.
I can only blame myself.
Now it's purple chrome!

Softly she whispers,
"Can you take me to bed now?
I'm sleepy, Mommy."

Prettier

Your skin is translucent, like fine china

I can see just far enough to discern your names,

To feel the spear-tip anger that built your fortress.



I wish I were prettier.



Not just better than the thieves and grifters…

Signs

The back of the truck says:

Makes wide right turns’…

I suspect it makes wide wrong turns, too.



This sign says “Runaway Truck Ramp”.

So, how did they know where to find…

Who bows to honor this ordinary woman?

A woman returns to what is left of her house…

She bears a mark

On the tip of one finger…



She has been cupped in madness’…

On the Tenth Anniversary of the Broome County Public Library:

[ I was asked to write an occasional poem for the tenth anniversary of the Broome County Library. It is more precisely a poetic speech, which I performed at their gala a few weeks ago. I am told it will be done in calligraphy and hung on the wall there.]



It is ten years this library has stood,

open to all who would attend their minds…

Moon shines through bare trees.
Orion reclines in the sky.
Nighttime in winter.

Being You


Being You

You being you and me being me,
I often wonder what it is that you see.
What is it you like?
How do I compare?
Can I ever measure up to one so fair?

You're respected, revered, multi-talented to boot.
Am I just a novelty, only a trinket that's cute?
Enigmatic, undefined, the highest compliment, it's true.
With the questioned unasked you answered "Thank you for being you."

When You Gotta Go

'When You Gotta Go'

copyright 2010 by Rick Reiley



Dig my grave, make it shallow

Heck just lay me on the ground

Clear a path and play the fiddle

And then dance all around



I have had a good ride

So carry on with the show

I'd just as soon stay here

But when you gotta go -you gotta go



(Chorus)

When you gotta go-You gotta go

If you're gonna get there on time

I hope to see you later

In the afterglow… Continue

Rock steps that lead down
Stop at the stairs leading up
To my cozy nest.

Full moon overhead
Lights trees in shades of gray through
Air like silver fog.
