Intimate Things

Sitting on the rim

Of a rainstorm

Thinking about

Thoughts of you,

Clouds almost

Kissing the rooftops

A cold wind

Whistllng on through,

A young woman

Came by with

Mystical rings

And the sweetest

The sexiest smile,

We sat near the clouds

Our backs to the wind

Talking about

Intimate things.

Clocks And Calendars

I am done

With the wow factor

Stephen,

Life is good,

I go to work

He goes to work

The kids go to school,

I make dinner

He mows the lawn

Sometimes we switch,

The kids come home,

TV, a movie now and then,

Plans for our holiday,

And of course

The new sleep aides

Are simply wonderful,

Reality is reality

Isn’t it Stephen,

It’s all about

Clocks and calendars,

I read you from

Time to time,

You’re really quite good

You know,

Something you wrote

Tagged with The Cure

Made my thighs tingle,

But my cell rang

And it was back to reality,

I don’t know how

You stick with now time,

It must be a Yogi thing,

Love as always,

Ithaca.

Sometimes Mornings

Sometimes mornings

Are a time stand still,

That interlude between

Shift changes

When nothing seems

To be happening,

But the unseen magic

Is still there,

Much like the energy

Racing between

A man and a woman,

Sensing the desire,

Fighting the urgency,

Never connecting

This time around.

A Goddess And A Wizard

A Wizard sat

Outside the door

Reading clouds

And listening to

Far away voices,

I swear he’s

A paranoid schizophrenic

The Goddess said,

I suppose if

Anyone knew about

Such things

She would know

For her energy spoke

Without her even speaking,

And what was I to do

A simple poet

Caught in the middle,

Drawn to both,

Stuck in that flux

That holds you

Powerless.
