You saw me in such a state!
Leather clad legs, and steaming;
The cracked rib was overlooked - but not the eyes.

Bemusedly, I missed them entirely, darling.
I just smile now, when I think of it, despite the awkward healing.
Obsessionally speaking, its adroit adeptness is my forte -
having always been so....

Only method changes. Honey is always sweet.

Best Birthdays - #46

A taste, a touch, a twinkle
Amidst a cheesecake sprinkle.
And as life adds another year
To simple country lives spent here,
A wish; but ...See!
A sparkle and a joy, as when you were a boy;
A grin, where none before;
Surprises from a special store -
And far away from all things tragic:
Today, love, I share Christmas magic.

Night's Sweet Glows

Oh, see, oh see, my heart,
Amidst night's velvet blanket's soft sweet murmurings! -
The quick trilled cricket's throb throated happy hopes;
The sob sob frogs alone upon the water's edge, now hopping happily;
The quickest gleam of white-winged butterfly, 'midst the garden's herbs -
The fair fine flash of flitting firefly, sure pathed.
Here, see? Only look, just there...ha ha! Swift sweeping...
Captured, in my eyes, just so!

What We Do, and Why

Work, amidst the din and dust
Work, amidst the rain and rust
Work, amidst the trials and tears
Work, despite the passing years
Work, when absent,
Work, through fear
Work, when I just dream you're here
Working thus, despite ourselves
When images are thoughts on shelves,
And all that did, and said, and was
Was simply, "Darling..Just Because."
