1.

a thin branch full of leaves sanguine.

there’s a breeze. take flight

to do a fluttering

dance among the flowers

for the sun and random eyes.

2.

joy

is a hibernating bear

rising from dormancy

with a hungry smile

for a metamorphosis.

3.

imagination’s

a caterpillar

crawling

along borders,

across lakes, oceans …

where we meet,

inspiring and merging

creative words,

sounds

and images.

4.

have you been

to the parties

in Mexico, Zaire,

New Zealand

and Central Asia …

to Native America

where the Hopi’s

and

Navajo’s

were dancing for you …

as single girls

don

hairstyles

in your image

for suitors?

5.

nature

carved your wings of awe,

with your mind and heart

splashing them

with colors of delight:

lime and orange

with specks 

of black and rouge,

an exquisite

sight to see. …

small.

delicate.

but a bit stronger

than first glances

assumed.

6.

so go on

fly on

let those wings

sing

a mid-summer song.

7.

go on fly on

i swear

there’s some drab places

in need

of your presence.
