January Fizzle

January flies by
stones have reached their destination
fizzle and pop 
new stones on the verge
waiting to meet you

Life Goes On

disappointment in her eyes
a failed effort
only to those 
who have a different view
life goes on 
into an open field

Sky Blue Pink

in between 
noise and 
tomorrow's dinner
moving past 
the girl with the curly hair
a slice of sky blue pink
fills the distance

North Star

raven cloud approaches
radiant slice of moon
north star keeps watch
life is never as it seems

Tapas

Tapas over basil
warm room to fill the senses
we settle in 
to the unknown

Tarmac

The black tarmac
smooth as a seals back
moonlight embellished 
in water drops
we slide home 

Cat on Lap

cat on lap
melts into my being
a cushion for her 
furry body

Old School

lace stockings
hair askew
old school electronica on a rampage
cocktails keep us dancing

Splash

Puddles create 
fantastic places 
for giggling children to splash
screams of joy infiltrate our lives

Morning Sky

pink clouds rest
over orange pantaloons
a morning sky
that thinks it's dusk

The Unexpected

The unexpected 
arrived right on time
closing eyes 
didn't stop feelings
from flowing

Pied Piper

Pied Piper on the wall
askance view through a Martini
blue eyes distract
a Parrish classic

Around the Table

friends gather
around the table
fire heating bodies
nearby
Pilsner sparks
conversation
music fills the background

She Follows Me Home

the drive seemed longer 
this night 
across the bridge
that connects two worlds
half dressed
her saucy eyes
followed me home
and hung out by the door 
until I was safely in

Towhee

Towhee
pops up upon the side mirror
warm brown body
sits comfortably
before the sun emerges 
for breakfast

Morning Moon

morning moon
bright as sunshine
peeks into
bedroom windows
bypassing curtains
and other things that keep
children sleeping

Vines

vines cling to brick 
peeking over at men
in florescent yellow and orange
drilling holes in the ground

the great SF
opened up her big 
avant garde arms 
and welcomed
master food wanderer
into her ups and downs

Lazy Day

while joggers whiz round bay area trails
i softly slip back into slumber

Winter Calm

photo by Blu Gengo
sunshine settles nicely 
on the garden wall
cool wind moves
shadows through redwoods
winter calm motivates
sleepy bones

Dark Chocolate

crumpled dark chocolate
melts inside 2nd day coffee
inspired by moon rays
sliding through steam

Muffin

Within a week
She's half the size she was
It may be just days
Before the spot on the desk 
Is empty

Long Way Home

A Mercedes squashed at both ends
Dog runs frantically in between speeding cars
A brown belly hawk lies lifeless upside-down
Wings spread out in defeat

Falling

photo by Blu Gengo
like a splash of falling stars
time shifts 
in the blink of an eye
jubilant noise surrounds our being
