rain falls, and washes everything clean
The Allegheny Valley from our balcony at 8:00 p.m.
Bursting forward with best intentions,
you lead by example.
some days the weather makes my thoughts hazy
I want to be an open vessel for otherwise unthought thoughts;
a tranquil glass of tequila, ready to be injusted and enjoyed.
A single rain drop or snowflake or tear stain or puddle splash;
content to have had one moment in the sun.
I want to be the echo of swallow calls in a cave;
light refracted from window to wall;
diamonds reflected from stilled waters.
