Gray skies
flowering trees
watery days
oleander blooming
lilies opening
ravens chasing
a sullen red tail
dipping
swooping
dog sleeping
like winter
never left…..
Stove glowing
squirrel staring
tail balanced
hands to heart
a nibble
a walnut
you gift
on the fence
a lost ray of sun
glazes it
shimmering feast.
Geese honking
river rising
clouds shifting
day ending
night beginning
years passing
dreaming
or
remembering
your sweet
savory
scent
when you pressed me close:
mother’s milk.
Waiting
hoping
praying
for the new girl child
you’ll not see
but only feel
from the shadows.
Bless her
with
garlands of eucalyptus
from the Andes
may she sing
in sweet tones
of her ancestral tongue.

In your name,
I’ll touch silver
and champagne
to her lips,
but not before
honoring
Pacha Mama
a cold drop
touching
the earth.
