summer’s daydream

a dream
taps me on the shoulder . . .
moon at my window


twilight . . .
the here to there
of blackbird song


the first faint bars of spring
on a snowdrop breeze . . .
a memory of my father
brushing by


morning stillness
how sweet the burden
of these boughs . . .
cherry blossom mind
shake loose your words


through how many lifetimes
did you pass
before you found your place
in summer’s daydream?

– composed for Robin White on her birthday.
