LOCH LENE by pd lyons, from When you Worship Swans No Longer

Undulate of diamond silhouettes

 North wind skirts pirouette

just past a fishing heron

fingerling samurai silver shadow

breath so deep it echoes

not one golden dream left behind

you’re where I’m gonna be forever

(for shelly)

Only August by pd lyons (Worship Swans Version)




Only August


almost quiet

only feather sounds


almost still

only slow

steady beating

as if horses


taught themselves

to march in order

across the fields

almost green

only smoky

spiral dust

almost damp descending


as if insects

finally taught themselves

to sing like falling rain

across midday

almost yawning

only august
