Suchoon Mo

A Mute With A  Cello

 

alone on the stage

Rita played a cello

 

in the deathly     silence of theater

her cello moaned and wailed

 

Rita was a mute

and      I was listening

Going Home

 

so it is and it is not

neither you       nor I are here or there

the train has left and the sun is still

time     to go home and no time to go

Suchoon Mo is a retired academic living in the semiarid part of Colorado.   His chap book, Frog Mantra, has been published by Accents Publishing of Lexington, Kentucky.

A Warm Dark Lake

 

I untie

I     open

the thin ice...

your cold thin gown

 

I wade into warm        dark lake

in summer heat

in winter snow

 

disrobed

the blue light       is still

the darkness throbs

 

gentle waves take us

to the other      shore

to our shore
