Be

October, early evening.

Remember the walk in the park, at dusk,
after hours spent daydreaming? Attune your heart
to the streetlights illuminating, the leaves,
aglow with autumn. The book of trees an understory
all gold, like a good plot all shiny, tangled,
bitter and sweet. Lift your face to the crisp wind,
to the pines, to the melody in the air. Sing along.
Remember the hopeful feeling like getting the first editions
of your favorite books or a passionate kiss from someone
who understands your quirks and finds them sexy. Lean into nature.
The improbable full moon, so big and bright no camera lens or artist’s hands could reproduce. Climb into the open sky, even the night. Remember. Relax. Be.

For Alex. My less than perfect cover of “Wings” by Birdy. Thanks for the request.

  3. Wonderfully written, you paint a very emotional piece within words,

    the bonus of a song finishing with a loving touch…

    i am grateful, sorry ifinn i hadn’t caught this earlier..

    Possibly bouncing sarcastically loving comments back an forth…
