the tree the wind lives in by pd lyons

the tree the wind lives in


the tree the wind lives in drowses a whisper

something on the road rain windows our promise

like rides to every hitch-hiker never kept


smoky headlights  hide and seek 

some kind of lace hung by my visiting mother

as if ever earned a simple gratitude




when i was 18 i moved into my first apartment. one day my mother came over. she hung lace curtains in the windows.

rough approximation

and if we sleep this night
will the tomorrow we awake to
be different from what dream

can we know either of us
we are the same
can we know either of us

what is ever changing
can it be ever known

what is never changing

can it ever be us












Kisses, by pd lyons from Caribu & Sister Stones: Selected Poems


saddles loosened

reins looped round a tree

ponies nickering at rest

just enough blue breeze whispers

answering tall almost gone to seed grass

some where in that summer

that girl still waits on me

Mozart Windows by PD Lyons



Mozart Windows

cool Irish summer

early enough

for dawn chorus
