He still does it
The old bird
Leaves the lake
And good fishing
Watches his reflection
Black and white
Distancing itself
From happy blue
Wavelets
Up and up
Those aerials helping.
Trees passed
In the ascent
Barren rocks the target
And fasting
And scraping of the beak
Fresh and new and sharp
And thinking oft
Of clouds and airways
Way overhead
Seemingly unreachable
Without Creator’s uplift.
How much time there
In the refining
Not the bird’s call certainly
But the waiting
And the watching
Both good.

INFLECTED VISION
I look through my reflection in a window
A transparency of me stares back
As i gaze into the world outside
Save for the sound of thawing snow dripping from the eaves…
The night is calm
From my restless slumber did I awake?
The warmth of my lover’s side did I forsake?
To stare at nothing?
To peer into myself?
Or perhaps to create an illusion in my mind to substitute
For something…
Imagined…
Felt…
 Missing?
I stood before “self”
Entranced…
Compelled to look out through my reflection…
Overlooking…
My e-v-e-r-y imperfection
As if searching for something lost
As though…
Some elusive panacea lay…
In the shadowy realms beyond
And it occurs to me…
That with equal intensity
In the cold dark night…
Through hungry eyes…
My reflection,
IS LOOKING IN!
(Written 1995 A.Gomez)
