Jerusalem Barley

Flicking over white rock, mussel grass
prune relics and sardine stone
through the Twin Pillars of Elizabeth,

past the Kentish-green river Darenth
in August or July

homing to a pattern of stars,
trawl of the sun, fields of earth's core

Atlantic salmon run, climbing Thames,
a scent of gravel in hill water

leaping the salmon ladders
lined along the weirs, to spawn and die
     a few making it to Spring.

My heart fell though rice paper
as I lay re-reading your letter
     by the light of a harvest moon.

     Euryhaline salmon are running
in the arrow of West Virginia,
the church of Philadelphia to seven
     outer candles of fire.

     I know we will keep our triangle
of Egyptian marble, of porphyry

walk the beach of a city, black harps
playing on eel grass and teal,

our twining spirits become one
     turning of light to light.

     The salmon will die and return
to roam an earthy rotunda, a temple

and we will rise gasping

========================

Journal Spring Equinox 2005 also:
=============================

Grey Heron

Light granting air a flash,
almond sail of a god
on estuary water, a tune
to catch a glimpse

I am astounded
at the calm of the heron,
still as ruffled statue
grey at the water's edge,
a divinity in our day.

He is more than he is
with the light on him.
Open, I take on bright air

salt in my every vein
from the marshalling pan
and sea-road of a god, rye
parchment in the offing
at the reed-sung beach.

=======================

Ceres Edge

Over plinth, a satellite ring,
the poison cornucopia,
past raw arable cement
to a tilted cabin

seeing orange peel
like a festering of juice
in the summer heat,

no purple-plumed legion
marching a mirage
or a whiff of the sea,
I walk to the salty rim
of our too-dry wheat.

From drought, a stir, gust
to flashes of rain
moistening soil
like tired biscuit. Saved

from fire, imminent corn
in our torrential space.

Literary Journal Autumn 
Equinox 2005. Also accepted:
======================

White Cup

Time ever plotting
an end to silence, flinging
a light with vivid flames
behind it, smoking dawn

has the gift of spume,
rock wall, ripening flood
and a dusk to open air
breathing the silence

eating a ruined basilica,
priest and evening wolves.

====================== 

Estuary Mouth 

Battery, cable
trailing to a tin hat. Car.
Apple core, a plank.

Tankers, red wafer
on the eastern horizon.
Forts. gulls, cormorants.

River promenade
mile on mile of sky,
raw sheer skies like wind.
