Pellegrino and Lime



by magenta petunias

and my friday night lights


it’s patio-perfect in spring


my footfall

and yours



past the snoring

winter wolf moon

turned pink


—and the little clink

our glasses make


to toast

the sun-drenched, fresh



we’ve palmed

of our lives

Every season sings a song.


The bells and sorrows

of winter

clang on and on.


But if Frost was right,

they, too, only last so long.


Stepping on

the turf of spring,


new birds fill their lungs,

have their say,

and hope renews that


nothing blue can stay.

Hot Pink October


© 2023 Jennifer Wagner

It’s still a few weeks away from the yellow-gray of November.  And even further from here.  In the desert, the air has shifted to cooler—not 118, but now 80.  The heat is more of a hug than a grizzly’s maul.  The Valley of the Sun is not cool and dreary come autumn.  It’s a valley of a different color.  Kind color—sweet, perhaps.  And it feels more like the mountaintop.  After all, we survived summer. 



a wave of color

at summer’s finish line
