August leaves bathe
on the rain-soaked driveway-
fall preview...

old song stirs
memories of a summer
long ago-
a familiar ache resting
deep in my chest.

Monday, July 27, 2009

shopping for sunscreen,
an aisle filled with notebooks and
unsharpened pencils
catches my eye-
reality sets in.

Thursday, July 16, 2009

warm sand between my toes-
memories slip through...

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

clear night sky
suddenly interrupted
by lightning-
flashes of your face now
replacing my quiet thoughts...

Monday, July 13, 2009

intertwine slowly-
no need for words...
waning moon
hangs low in the night sky-
I look on,
heavy-hearted, knowing
that soon he will be gone...

at last I hear
her steady, even breathing
in the dark-
crickets unaware
continue their lullabies...

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

his breath on my neck,
eyes close as lips waver-

Sunday, July 5, 2009

watching darkness fall,
my spirit rises
with the full moon

soft haze
rests above the river
with my thoughts
distant fireworks
heard on the fifth of July-

Friday, July 3, 2009

July moon
plays hide and seek behind
the silver clouds
pink lemonade-
drinking in
the summer sunset
dying grass
begs the sky
for mercy

Thursday, July 2, 2009

if soft moonlight
had a scent,
it would be yours
a summer half-gone
leaves me somber until
her popsicle grin
reminds me
of the half that lies ahead...

seven stars
pour thoughts of you into
my evening daydreams...
