Sunday Whirl #55

Cinco de Mayo Moon

Honor the day

It was no chance glance

Into last night’s dark cobalt sky

You emerging upon the scene

Gently touching the guitar strings

The night was clear

Nothing separated us

Our hearts aligned

You winked at me

Set the hook

My heart vibrated in your glow

Sang your song

You imprinted your shiny face

On my heart

My feet moved to the music

You erased the day’s grind

Contrasted a new way

You are so much more

Than a tiny dot in

The Universe of stars

May 5, 2011 Weeds


The weeds grow between the stones

Staking claim to their part of the court

The mountain air

Chills my skin

One day so like the day before

Each day begins

A mountain to climb

The day ends

Progress is hard to see

Just like the weeds

I pull them

Tomorrow they are there

To be pulled again
