Tiki Me Pink

If you don’t mind,
I’m kind

of tired
of all this
drizzle drivel.

If you please,

me with your
lazy blue wing.

I need to sing
sun lullabies,

cat curled
round my feet
in the heat,

a purr, a giggle,
in my sleep.

Wishfully dreaming of summer for dVerse Q44.

Each season has its own offering.  Spring buds.  Summer glows.  Autumn colors.  Winter shrouds.  In winter, we hold contradictions up to the waning light, swirl them round the glass, sip.  Our losses are bettered in this reflection, when we can begin to see what good comes even after the fissured earth cracks again, when what remains softens, fills.

how silent now
this path strewn with jagged stones
a softening of snow
