Vintage Ride

As you rumble along

Under skies

Blue like song,

Do you travel

Afar

To the past

In this car?

What new memories

You’d share

Of what’s found

Over there?

Do days gone

Still speed on

Scene by scene

Gray and green

By the glean

Of your machine?

A Good Fit

“How does it look?” she twirled,

And I knew she was asking about

A lot more

Than the dress.

 

“It looks really great,” I answered,

And she knew

It was about

A lot more than

Her silhouette,

Or how the fabric hugged

Her curves.

 

“Then I’ll take it,” she said.

And we smiled because

We both knew

It meant she will take him, as well.

Under Cloudy Skies

Mountains brood

Under skies

Packed with cotton

Piled high

Wrapped in shadows

Near by.

Afternoon

In Chiang Mai.

Harp’s Heart

Off they go

With the harp

And the sounds

In their hearts.

Off they go

To work hard

And music’s soul

To impart.

Gentle Giant

Hello Mom

I have come

To help with

The clothes.

Can you see

Just how gentle

I am being

With those?

I did not bite a hole

Heel or toe

In the socks.

Nothing like

What I’d done

To the new

Garden hose.

Peas in a Pod

Like peas in a pod

They await

The day’s show.

Friends in flowers

And costumes

They’re alike

Yet I know,

Their hearts sing

Unique songs

I would like

To hear so!

In Flight

In the slight pause between

Flapping up,

Flapping down,

Live the breath

And the lift

That propel

To carry on.

Reflecting On Reflection

Sky and clouds

Take a swim

As day fills

To the brim,

And the light

Lets you know:

As above

So below.

Sailed Horizon

I will paddle into sunlight

Where the ocean

Kisses sky,

Where the sailboats’

Neat triangles

Patch the blue

With bits of pie.

Floored

Not a rug

But a floor

You’ll be floored

To adore

As you find

Even more

To marvel

Galore.
