Touch Me

Summer is late, my heart.
Words plucked out of the air
some forty years ago
when I was wild with love
and torn almost in two
scatter like leaves this night
of whistling wind and rain.
It is my heart that’s late,
it is my song that’s flown.
Outdoors all afternoon
under a gunmetal sky
staking my garden down,
I kneeled to the crickets trilling
underfoot as if about
to burst from their crusty shells;
and like a child again
marveled to hear so clear
and brave a music pour
from such a small machine.
What makes the engine go?
Desire, desire, desire.
The longing for the dance
stirs in the buried life.
One season only,
and it’s done.
So let the battered old willow
thrash against the windowpanes
and the house timbers creak.
Darling, do you remember
the man you married? Touch me,
remind me who I am.

Still daydreaming about this home made lunch I had in Tenerife, Canary Islands.  My Canarias mom sure had a way with octopus.

Eighty-eight-year-old Misa found her odd-eyed kitty, Fukumaru, abandoned in a shed. Now the two are basically inseparable.

My favorite photo book of the year, by far.

I feel like David Attenborough finding my 2 cats together at the watering hole. Behold, this rare spectacle!
Thank you in advance to the cat ladies that will appreciate this.

Thank you, advanced technology of the virtual hair makeover; how will I ever decide on a wedding hairstyle now?
