Summer Is Sweet

if

one might imagine

a quiet wander

with little reason to explain

beyond this simple beauty

a wheat length

with season to hold

a nostalgic prayer

her father once told

so now this sunrise

her favorite flair

to no one’s eyes

just for her

such is sweet

in reckoning

truth

beauty is

sweet response

we have so

forgotten

simple is nature

her

we will

notice

only believe

in what is real

on this

sun-swept

afternoon

please give

us peace

for it is all she

would ever might

want

Speaking of the Moon

It was an afterthought,

driving home,

the eastern sky suddenly on fire

my mind

in the sweet form of the full moon.

 

Oh so many moons have

wandered my mind

imagining,

a sweet fantasy turns reality,

and yet left

in a silent daze of beauty.

 

The moon does such trials to the mind,

in its mystique

reminds us all we are

glancing at the same

the sensuality of nature’s evening

illumination.

 

I wanted a picture,

to send,

to remind,

a suggestion of time,

that this is the same moon,

we did, I wished, she might

find in the quiet …
