Enough

 

Nancy

 

 

An August morn

A Manhattan street

The plague of traffic

Humanity  

Hurries

To be

Somewhere

 

~

 

Dream

 

A summer field

Hovering angels

Gather nightís mantle

Drape dawnís

Blue and pink and cloudless

Above us

 

Come

 

Scatter swallows

A riot of robins

Sprinkle butterflies

Free the breeze

Spread the quilt

The hamperís fare

Taste

Above

In the sunshine

 

More

 

Afternoon bluster

Your

First glimpse

Heavenís arcing circuits

In the day-dark

Breathe the power

Touch the frenzy

 

Run

 

Through the rain

Laugh and

Wonder and

Applaud the pageant

Hold me close

Show me your face

In the flash of lightning

Kiss me

Elevators

Gulp

Me

Too many others

Air conditioners

Sweat

Loud

In office windows

I think of you

At work

Cool stones

Your comfort

 

In my heart

No

List of wishes

Begs

No

If only

Taunts

 

Before I ever knew

To ask

The prize

Was mine

The treasure

Laid before me

In

One

The only one

Who could matter

 

You

Divinely formed

For me

 

I

Created

For you

 

We live

We love

This day

 

It is

You are

So much more than

Enough

 

 

For Linda

You gave us Catherine

Happy Birthday
