things happen unseen
turn your back for five minutes
and what do you know!

n.b. Summer? Already?

on light

is this Italy?
pine trees, clear sky, sickle moon?
yucca's frost needles

n.b. Come, take me away from here! To Italy for spring showers, steaming pavements and warmth of the morning sun.

n.b. What else would one need as the temperature falls faster than leaves?

Wholly

within the whole a hole
where the light goes in
and warms the soul

Dream #6

so silent this blue turns black

nothing moves on Earth

a meteor streak

a faint schwoosh far off

sprinkled stardust

dissolves into tapestry of night

bottle; long-term substitute

Oh Sleep

Come, take me away

to foreign lands where it’s warm

and please return me safe at dawn

~

n.b. Just to be abroad for a bit would be lovely.

L3 (Day 48): In The Sun

I turned east-by-south-east toward the morning Sun and let its light pour onto my face.

With my essential shopping done and due to return indoors, I chose to stand, eyes closed, just for that moment to savour the un-closeted warmth. It was a good moment after all that has come before.

On The Beach

I sat on the stones

In warm air

Spray on my face

Sea air in my lungs

Warmth of Sun on my back

I sat on the stones

Nothing more than this
