She likes feathers –

leaves of lace,

wings in willows

kissed with grace,


trails of moonlight,

velvet strings,

dew-lit grass

and faerie rings.


She likes watercolors

in the trees

and lichen stirring

in the breeze


and mossy fractals

around lagoons

and gossamer tendrils

in founts and plumes.


She likes sea spray

on crystal clear

and Agape in

the atmosphere


and deep behind

a filigree shawl


on the wall.


She likes feathers,

leaves of grace,

time on the wing,

a kiss on the face


and ribbons dangling

from the mirror

and sweet suggestions

in her ear.

They drift like feathers

two thoughts passing in the night

dreaming the same dream.

(remembering a first marriage…)


Do you remember

silver man,

when we were two wings

flying one dream

beneath warm quilts?

But one night

I couldn’t breathe

and tore off the covers

when you couldn’t help

but throw

your pillow down.

We rolled

from the edges

of the bed

and let the feathers


into the spread

of time.

Still now and then

one catches my eyeIMG_5141

floating to the floor.
