Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Last Time I Saw You Alive...

We exchanged harsh words...
I let you walk out that door
without a goodbye

The time flies - and I fly with it

                                                My mirror
                                 it shows me a middle-aged lady
                                                Who is it?

The very first time

By: Miranda Lambert
For: Michael Falotico’s contest “Eyes First Meet”

Simple as a glance
Turns two stares entwined
Distant, unknown, yet conjoined

Seduced by my eyes
Your temptation begins to sting
Denial no longer and option

End with a burning kiss
Indulging fever from our lips
Caressing that love into today

splash of yellow hues winking across a black mat breaths dance with stardust light folds drenched eyelids skins under quilt of twilight ~ lullaby the moon soon, city lamps dim with prayers melting faces life’s traffic on hold
and so aprons sleep hanging on a weary chair ~ smelling of meatloaf

Still I wait

Those emotions felt.
Why will they not go away.
for her I still wait.

one leaf dangled

one leaf dangled from
a single spider-web strand
in fresh morning air

as I greeted the sun,
sitting under a tree in
my dew-filled backyard

I was stilled by the
beauty of this lone leaf, in
its simplicity

But, then the leaf fell
I was startled, but the joy
in my heart  remained
