we walk through the dawn
to watch hot air balloons
ascend …
no way to predict
where today will take us

  a long road
stretches before me …
should I stay the path
or follow that butterfly
into the woods

    an inch of sky
stitched in the song
of a goldfinch …
i skirt the fluid edges
of a Monet canvas

such brightness
beyond this wooded path
the clarion notes
of indigo buntings
singing down the sky

  after all these years
not quite the beauty
she once was
but tonight again
I seek her softness

    soft candle light
and a dozen roses
should I tell him
our anniversary
was yesterday
