Yesterday song

She sits in her memory
Swing back and forth
To the song she remembers
Watching and waiting

“Watching and waiting
For a friend to play with
Why have I been alone so long”

She sways and hums along
To the tempo of her thoughts
Slow
Steady

“Cos here there’s lot of room for doing
The thing you’ve always been denied
Look and gather all you want to
There’s no one here to stop you trying”

She knows the truth to these words
As she has been here
And lived them before.
Like a truth told
They always come back to her
The sweetness of a fable
Caught in the web of her illusion

“Soon you will see me
Cos I’ll be all around you
But where I come from I can’t tell
But don’t be alarmed by my fields and my forests
They’re here for only you to share”

She dreams the moment alive
In her heart and head
Watching and waiting she remains
Forever in a spell
Of yesterday.

“Watching and waiting
For someone to understand me
I hope it won’t be very long”

Lyrics in quotes from Watching and waiting The Moody Blues
Hayward/Lodge

Day of flowers

You whisper to me
The sweetest of sighs
Escape into the air
Eyes closed I hold your hand
And behind my eyes
Behold a single flower.
Color of each rainbow hue
A petal
He loves me
He loves me not
The petals fall slowly to the ground,
A rain of crayola world tint,
Always ends on
Loving me
With his whole heart.
I hold the flower in my fingers
So fragile
So beautiful
So filled with the wonder
In a day of flowers
This one means the most
To a heart touched
By love.

Desert cross

South Dakota
Hot and dry
Tires ride the asphalt
Glimmering in the distance
Like oasis image
Melted black snake
Winding to the hills.
Metal building
Open welcome
Cool air
Frosty on sun dried face
Aching for relief.
Hot to cold
A shop of past
Trinkets
Antique
Quiet corner hangs
A piece that calls us
Come
Look
See.
Rust peeking through
Chipped
Weather
White.
Ornament to mark
A trip of beauty
A find of worth
To a heart.
