fireflies dance
fireflies dance
as the crickets sing
to the moon

with my cell-phone
with my cell-phone,

listening to your message

from weeks ago

as the moon hangs above me-

the only one to talk to...

I see a girl
I see a girl
(now a woman) that I knew
many years ago-
a cloud temporarily
covers the sun

miles and miles
miles and miles
of delta flat land-
mosquitoes

(I'm dead tired and will be home tomorrow night.)

humid hot air
I'm going from the west edge of the state (on the Arkansas River) to Helena, on the east edge of the state (on the Mississippi River) tomorrow. Hope I'm not washed down to New Orleans. :)
Should be able to post tomorrow night, but if not, I'll be back Thursday night.
.
humid hot air
slowly swirls around me
in hazy moonlight-
pen stops when I hear
a far away riverboat

smell of rain
smell of rain
after a hot week
fills my nose
as the thunder fills my ears-
your face fills my mind's eye

we walk down the sidewalk,
looking through windows,
enjoying the warmth-
summer solstice

on the boardwalk by the lake
knowing it's the last

unable to hide
We lost power Sunday night and got it back tonight. Trees all over the town were torn down, some on houses. It's going to take a long time to have this cleaned. I'm exhausted...
.
unable to hide,
the signs of age on my face-
bright full moon
.

pulled from the brick wall
after sunset,
surrounding my body,
taking your place

are hidden from your eyes
and your ears-
deciding which flowers
to pick for you

how to dream, leaving me
with reality-
holding the pillow
to smell your perfume

vicariously
vicariously
filling up my spirit
with music-
a possum runs by
in the rhythm of a banjo
.
I sat out last night and listened to a party at the house behind us. There was a live band playing and it was wonderful! I stayed out until 1 a.m.
I videoed a bit of it in the dark so you could hear it. Having problems getting it put here, but I'll try again tomorrow. :)

at a church funeral-

appreciating the clouds

fireflies
70 mph wind, heavy rain and lightning. All of them leave the neighborhood powerless. Trees have snapped and some lay across the roads.
Now at midnight, the cloudy sky is pitch black. No sign of human life....
.
fireflies
flicker around me-
dark mood
