Dreaming of the One

Banner photo BANNER.jpg
 
This week’s words are: chance, nest, secret, clever, swept, ripe, blinked, stars, basket, flesh, saw, hand
 


 
~~ 1 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who stole my seven ripe plums,
while I blinked back tears.
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
I dream of the one
whose basket was filled with stars,
harvested by hand.
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who thought himself so clever
that he swept my heart.
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who saw my naked flesh, yet
did not turn away.
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
I dream of the one
I met by chance one evening
in a secret place.
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
I dream of the one
who helped the wren pad her nest
before the storm struck.

The Dancers

The dancers allege
that nothing can take the place
of an all-night whirl.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
The dancers conceal
their true purpose in whirling
from midnight to sunrise.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
The dancers propose
a toast to the old fiddler,
who keeps them whirling.

Fallen bougainvillea bracts, Southern California
 


Who betrayed these bracts,
tossing them into the grass
to fade and wither?

Sitting on the fence
uncertainty gnaws at him—
hungry little mouse.

Reading her postcard,
I saw the burning passion
in the dancers’ eyes.

Long and Winding Road


 


Long and winding road,
you have led me to this place—
my heart blooms with joy!

Weary Traveler

Only for an Hour

Iris at Hubbell
 
As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
Psalm 103:15-16, King James Version
 

Only for an hour
blossoms tame or wild flower,
then they fade away.

Someone Wild Singing

Someone wild singing
in blossoms, dust and shadow—
is it Sun Maiden?

Sizzling desert light—
shifting shadows writhe and dance,
conjuring spring rain.
