She floats free,

a rainbow bubble

rising on

Vivaldi

over ruby-studded waves

chasing after him.

There are times

love is a fine rain

misting down

all for naught

evaporating before

it can hit the ground

.

but sometimes

love peels back the rain

exposing sun

sending heat

palpitations to the earth

handing us a rose.

Day and night

we must remember

take nothing

for granted

everything is in flux

love alone endures.

Fresh paper

on the old clipboard

new gel pens

with blue ink

ready to cook up a poem

waiting for my muse.

Sehome Hill

was the place to go

after dark

college kids

parked for hours in old sedans

making memories.

.

Met a guy

took me to “The Web”

beatniks read

poetry

argued relativity

high on espresso.

.

Sparkling views

close to waterfalls

Mount Baker

Puget Sound

winding drives on Chuckanut

easy on the curves.

Late at night

she weaves poetry

silken words

feather spun

tethered to uncertainty

loving anyway.

She sorts through

ribbons and buttons

bobby pins

crocheted lace

memories of her mother

tied up in a bow.
