Hearts

 photo IMG_4651_zpsbvoyl6i4.jpg
A table decoration lies aslant after a sweetheart dinner at an Arizona church.
  


The dinner party’s over,
The hearts are all askew;
It’s time to clear the tables—
Bring on the busser crew!
 
They love to clear the tables,
They know there will be tips;
But you and I, my valentine,
Shall feed our hungry lips!

Flung

Sunflower and bee
Sunflower at daybreak, Southern California
 


Someone flung these stars
across the meadow at dawn—
bees claw at their hearts.

At a wayside shrine
weary pilgrims pause to pray—
empty hearts are filled.

Rustling leaves dancing
Light breeze brushing rosy cheeks
Young hearts aflutter*


underneath the brittlebush
he fumbles with her buttons

Under chestnut leaves
field mice hide with pounding hearts
till the farmer’s gone.

Had you a teabowl,
Lady of the sacred heart,
would you stir in love?
