wide open windows
for the first time this summer
we shush each other





June 29, 2016

small enough
that it must be from this spring
hedgerow bunny

June 27, 2016

rain while we sleep
a few new shades of green
dreams of a fresh start


June 26, 2016

June 25, 2016

summer’s reach
warmth pulsing back from the earth
come such a long way

after the rain
the sound of it still rushing
under the streets


June 20, 2016

June 19, 2016

grandmother’s suitcase
a little heavier now
as the trip winds down


June 18, 2016

swimsuits dripping
and flip flops on the stairs —
summer’s percussion

heads almost touching
we take telescope turns
the stars wink and flirt


June 13, 2016

where we tried
to follow each other’s lead
no more dancers


June 12, 2016

seeds on the sidewalk
waiting on rain to wash them
to someplace better


June 11, 2016

allow me to stay
in the pages of my book
hush now, you crickets!


June 10, 2016

what slipped inside
the doors we forgot to close
almost summer


June 09, 2016

June 08, 2016

even with shoes on
I practice reaching up
to hug our teen


June 07, 2016

pre-dawn bird song
full of urgency and need
don’t miss this sunrise


June 06, 2016

I love to wake up
before you open your eyes...
when I’m just a dream


June 05, 2016

these pink clouds
holding the last of the light
I remember you



(in memory of my friend Ann)
