No Introduction Necessary

Oh yes we have met before
Over bald heads
questions, directions and
tea
What is the story
Words passed
Apologies offered
What is the story?

There is always a story
You just have to ask me

Miss Birdseed Times of

Coolness

Walking quickly in the
coolness of the day
Wondering how long it is
going to stay this way
Breathing deeply
Savoring the air
Looking for flashes of color
everywhere

Elusive

Her eye looks over
but
It is gone

before she can grasp it

or see
where it goes or
what it was supposed to be

Morning Walk


Slipping into the soft unfolding
of the day
Watching as the sun wakes up the fields
from their darkness of the night

Touching leaves as they glisten with the
morning dew
Listening as the birds call their morning song
Soaring with them in their graceful flight

Nighttime Thoughts

Tucking you into bed
I hear a noise
turn my head
Norfolk pine swaying
gently in the breeze
calling me to think thoughts of
other things
that the nighttime brings

Beach

I touched the beach today
I walked with the sand shifting beneath my feet
I walked with the sun covered
by the drifting clouds
I wasn’t really here nor there
It was just what I was thinking

Something that I had done and
would do again in the future of
my time

To the Wind

Yellow petals
crumbled
in my palm
not holding on
scattered
to the wind

Shells

I am sending you shells
from the beach
I want you to come visit
But you are not within reach
But a shell, when it appears
at your door
You will know who it is from
and what it is for

Come listen to the waves
and the sound as they crash
at the shore

Come to my home and
knock at my door

And I will let you
in and together we can listen
my dear friend

100

I have decided that
I am not going to live to be 100
At least not today
I think I will wait until
I lose all my teeth and
maybe my hair turns
grey
But for now
all my teeth are mine
and my hair color too

I think living to 100 is
highly overrated
I think maybe it would be better
if this week we aimed for 92.

Unless of course you have a better number
No, well then for now
92 will just have to do
