tell me


late evening

quiet residential streets

and as I took flight above the walkers and the trees

I beheld a vast field of stars

or was it grain upon the miller’s floor ?

so abundant were the seeds of light

so vast his open door

tell me

have you been here before ?

bouquet


dahlia buds every which way

all pointing homeward

and then you say

here my love

how words on a page are love in a song


how words on a page
are love in a song

when they are fewer than one
and the singer has gone

and the page is a leaf
in your palm

now the honey thickens


now the honey thickens
and the ladybugs grow wise

enough
to realize

summer
flies

by a multitude
of eyes
