After Love

he touches me thus

bodies slick sweet musk rises

skin warmed love fulfilled

Little Blue House

little blue house

were we lived and loved

three fine sons

came and went

time passed so quickly we mourned

our little house gone

Longing

longing for his touch

crying bitter winter tears

hope returned with spring

The Crows Ptotest

bird beaks stab the air

while meddlesome cat lurks near

feisty crows squawking

Love In the Afternoon

Image

 

loves labor

time and again

he had done the same thing.

my eyes closed,

his sensual movements

and slow steady breathing

told me what I did not need to see.

the strike of a match

the faint smell of sulfer

deep inhale and

it is as it always is.

after, our bodies, locked, embracing

we become one movement

with pounding hearts.

after, limbs entwined, slick glowing

soft moans, gentle groans.

after,we reaching higher and higher

till all is spent.

laying there were passion is done.

both as empty

as once our wine glasses were full.

we wait,

calmly

to once more be filled.

now,

smoke rises slowly over our bodies

covering the sweetness of our labor.

exhaling,

he turns to me

his intense greens eyes

sedated for now.

Too Late His Garden

his garden

planted with springs gifts

tenderly

nursed by him

green shoots came forth aplenty

the promise to late

Maggie

Image

 

maggie a small red sheparerd

was his shadow in life

he lead she followed.

 

her sweet brown eyes

watched every move he made

always by his side.

 

maggie thought she was a cat

she sat on our laps

and slept on our bed.

 

each night he returned from work

she lay down at his feet

waiting for a good rub.

 

winter found her

before the fireplace

her deep brown eyes unknowable.

 

maggie loved snow

romping through drifts

with a black nose cold, eyes bright.

 

she lived for many years

and when it was time

he took care of it.

 

we never spoke of it again

he, moving a little slower

was never the same

 

his little shadow

guard dog, loving pet

gone forever

 

he too now is gone

from a the blue house we shared

I miss them both.
