stretching out my hand
to caress a sunflower
before the first frost

sunflowers pointing the way to autumn

controlling her breath
even as she remembers
his tempting caress
~~ ~~ ~~
Controlling her breath,
she tries not to glance at him—
but, oh, that six-pack!
~~ ~~ ~~
Controlling her breath,
still she manages to pout—
and the goddess smiles.

This week’s Sunday Whirl words: scarlet, first, struck, pair, expect, sky, save, caress, bit, spare, might, behind

~~ 1 ~~
scarlet rebozo
draped around her thin shoulders
keeping in the chill
~~ 2 ~~
first prune the plum tree
the grapes will wait till Wednesday—
the cellist knows why
~~ 3 ~~
struck by lightning bolts
the mausoleum in ruins
plumes of marble dust
~~ 4 ~~
pair of dead man’s shoes
stuffed with twenty-dollar bills
cradling baby mice
~~ 5 ~~
expect the raven
to guide you to your true home
hapless wanderer
~~ 6 ~~
sky rolls and tumbles
the fist of a thunderstorm
punching the prairie
~~ 7 ~~
save another’s dreams
stuffing them in your pocket
with lint and spare change
~~ 8 ~~
caress the old cat
until she purrs with pleasure
one more smoky night
~~ 9 ~~
bit, bridle and rein—
after an early breakfast
the journey begins
~~ 10 ~~
might stories unfold
from unexpected sources
Scheherazade knows
~~ 11 ~~
spare bedroom
hosting guests tonight
three beggars
~~ 12 ~~
behind the old doors
the gentle susurrations
of travelers’ dreams
