From midsummer’s unstifled sigh,
creamsicle sky melts in July....

Feeling your presence beside me
Strangers passing by, lost in the darkness
I see the reflection of the city lights in your eyes like stars...

Trudging through life with a full facial frown
Back in December we hoped it would snow
But not a flake...

In July
In July mosquitoes fly 
And hummingbirds are humming.
Bees will buzz and all because
They don’t know fall is coming.

Weeks remain so none complain
That summer zips by...

On Night's Broken Stage
The dervish whirls—
deserts fable
over candles,
atop mantle fires,

to flutter near...

We gape at the sky
this Fourth of July,
as rockets ignite
to deal us delight,
while strangers unite.

it gives me hope
that Nations torn
can be reborn.

As darkness descends.
Tranquil as time flows past. 
With this precious rest.
Led out on the grass.

Sleepless slumber in dreamlike clarity. 
Summer thunder above a scenic prairie....

embodied in the fabric of a flag.
A flag imbued with hope
tarnished by fear
bloodied of necessity.
This flag, this weary tattered symbol
