Something Happened in My Head Last Night

Something happened in my head last night;
I expected it to happen in my heart.
That’s what I thought was at stake, you see,
My heart and maybe my soul.
These spike-like holes opened up in my head.
Dark, I thought they were black!
I walked my spirit through one of them
And it filled itself with light.

Yellow Tulips and an Afternoon Poem

It happened in a newborn moment
sparkling with imbroglios of fortune
catching you with snaggles,
burying their burning tendrils in your palm.

Where is the symphony, the opera and the rat-tat-tat?
Would you settle for that field of growing grain?
Stalks whiskered with morning dew,
breaking the sunlight into laughter,
your touch as dear as astrophysics.
