you were once my muse
I wrote love poems
collecting them in journals
your brown eyes enchanted
me to words across pages
in time your magic faded and
I have found new daydreams
still once a blue moon
my mind drifts back to you

first snow day

it is the first snow day of the year and
I have to leave my warm apartment
I brush off inches of snow off the car
after hours of falling snowflakes
the coldness seeps through my boots
and into my frigid feet and toes
I try to clear the car in a hurry
before my fingers begin to tingle
I slowly pull out of my parking space
with a prayer all the way to my destination

cool blue

in my dreams
all I see
cool blue sky
and your eyes
a soft brown
seduce me
with visions
of warm sun
silver stars

winter solstice

the shortest day of the year
fades into darkness
a snip of smoke
echoes out of a chimney
lady winter has made
her promised arrival

hair tinsel

I have seen girls tinsel their hair
in blues, pinks and purples
I wonder what dyes were mixed
to birth such vivid hues
I think I’m getting old at forty-three
with my cool days behind me, or
perhaps my best years really lie ahead

dawn on my face
dreams fade into sunlight
I awake again to warm thoughts
of you

I will crown this poem

I will crown this poem with gorgeous words
that will ignite a flame within hearts
it will be as regal as a queen knighting
citizens or a king conquering lands far away
or it will be a wallflower sitting in corners
blooming in silence
