The Dove Above

by G. Jack Urso

is there a dove

that flies above

and watches with eyes

over wide blue skies?


is there a snake

that rattles and shakes

guides us to trees

of knowledge and leaves?


am i dust

i wish i knew

or am i just

an animal too?

Candle Opera

The sad thing about candles

is not that their light goes out

but how brightly they once burned

For Annie, my most precious companion (2005-2022).
