2:40 AM

pain
makes for
wide open eyes
at 2:40 am
ah
but the moon
is this lovely
light
stars
bright
and high above
the night is calm
and cool
wrapped in
shawl
made by
my every stitch
the happiness
we call ruby
seeks inclusion
comfortable lap
and special treat
stephen stills
in the background
‘love the one
you’re with’
uh huh
sure do
I wish you that
at any hour

WATER?

clean
copper pot
drying
in the sun
a stone
from
the river bed
drip, drip
of
the faucet
a dipper
from
the well
for
your thirst

ONE REASON

the sky is
stuffed with blue grey
clouds
ready bursting
to rain
20 minutes later
they moved on
bright sun
on his way
still cool and misty
smell of earth and rain
god fed the birds
his wife changed the water
cinnamon coffee
Tracy Chapman and Eric Clapton
sing
give me a reason to stay
I
gave you a few, baby
hang around
