That balances

Scents of
lilac
cherry
apple
magnolia
swirl
on the heavy hotness
of a sudden city summer
threads of coloured oil
poured on warming water
as changeable, languid
and persistently elusive
as an unformed thought
that balances just
on the edge of awareness.

Hi Coyote...just saying hi. Getting internet access in the desert is about as easy as herding cats. :) Wanted to let you know I'm still alive...I'll check back in when I can and things get sorted out here.

Hi, Christa; so glad to hear from you. Good luck wrangling those furlines!
