Samantha’s Daily Poem

July 31, 2011

The wind did this to you



The wind did this to you.
Wrapped you in the afternoon’s
breath, cold off the sea
licked your soft new skin
with salt and the roar
of a thousand miles of memory.

You grabbed at it
how could it be so slippery
and hard to see
your arms flapped
recklessly
your chin shiny
with drool
you shrieked
and giggled
like a possessed
pigeon.

Unblocked
by diffidence
hard-core frolicking
surrender
you and the wind
were entwined
and no one could say
for sure
if it was you
or the wind
at the mercy
of this passing moment
of joy.

Baby deer



Baby deer
eyes wide open
floating
your head nods up and down
on the waves
so that it looks like
you are still alive
saying yes yes
don’t worry, mama
I can make it
I can swim a little
longer
don’t go too fast
I am right
behind you.

A mission



I like a mission
a purpose to my errands
that infuses them
with tenacity.

A white frame
in an odd size
a travel alarm clock
not made in China
a second-hand anything
in chartreuse.

I am aware
this hunting is a symptom
of brewing discontent
an escape
a release
a suspension
of the deeper me.

But it is consuming
all the same
in a strangely
breathless
euphoric
way.

Devoid of wit



An effect
almost an allergy
in her presence
I am rendered
devoid
of wit.
She is not
the only one
some people drain
my thoughts
I mumble and clunk
I am dim
I slosh around my brain
and find there is nothing
to say.
You are not
like that.
I see your name light up
my call display
and I am
returned
to vigour.
I am chasing my ego
perhaps
but sometimes we need to run
to remember
the rush
of being alive.

Treasures



He clutches the bookmark
a set of keys
the old remote control
my mom found
at the recycling depot

teaching me

it is possible
to cherish
everything.
