One Way to Look at It

(A poem for June)

Half way through
I haven’t done half
of what I said I would.

Half of things left undone . . .

but of the other half?  I won.

I wrote this in June and since it’s the end of July I figured maybe I would post it –which is how my year seems to be going!

beautiful name(s)

your name
a whisper on his lips

called like consuming fire
to taste and see
he is good

the sweetness of his name
on your lips

like water
like honey

like something new
you didn’t know
all this time
has found you

when you didn’t know
what you were looking for
