A Day in May

A Day in May (for Rena)

On a warm day in May – sun desperate
To peek from behind playful clouds,
Warm, but not unpleasant,
And slender fingers of conversation
Or music or traffic noise from in the distance
Play the melody of life in my ears –

I think of you.

Not just you, but the youthful
Patterns of your speech
The not so subtle images
That I seek before I sleep

The stance the glance what’s in those pants
You smile I watch my day enhance
You moan I pray I get my chance
You laugh I think that you enchant

I am spelled, your magic works

I inhale your every word
Exhale my love into the void
And hope it reaches through the ether
And to your heart right through your nerves

Ya heard?

If words could heal I’d write your health
I’d pen the doctors lesson
I’d prescribe the phrase to soothe your soul
I’d speak your convalescence

On a warm day in May – sun desperate
To peek from behind playful clouds,
Warm, but not unpleasant,
And slender fingers of conversation
Or music or traffic noise from in the distance
Play the melody of life in my ears –

I think of you.
Gate Lane - May Ends
