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 cat (2005-2022).
