Sunset. Synergy is moving between chairs
that don't quite match, widening tight circles   
of rovers. Muses Cafe, a small cove where
views internalize, so we heave heavy troubles

outside. Minstrel Mary Anne Epp shelters 
songs about happenstance. When a server drops
a plate, she ad libs, Save cracks for later.
Heads nod to her witty vibes, bite-sized bops.

Inspiration strums as parlance sighs, Good grief,              
my journal's at home.  You say, All's fine.
but your purse offers only ONE loose leaf,
curiously room enough for TWO to lay lines.

Pens groove. Friend, you prove that poets can wage
self-determined verse while on the same page.

*For Kathryn

    This is quite the intriguing sonnet, Cyndi and I think this has a bunch of layers into it-- sorry I will have to read this again to try to get it more-- but just wanted to say that hopefully I can join the workshop by the end of the week, when I have a bit more free time? I just have to decide which write to enter, oops.

    Cyndi dahling --- Swat you: no, hug you, yes. I checked Mary Ann Epp on a few sites. How can you put me in the same paragraph as she? I am so back in the sixties with a 2014 frame of mind right now. What a voice - musically and poetically. Thank you. You are my sunshine. love, Kathy

    Awesome sonnet, Cyndi. I know you have brought a huge smile to Kathryn's face this morning. I have read Mary Ann Epp, she is very good, as is our dear Kathryn. Very fitting, and so well done. hugs, Catie :)
