the smell of coffee and the stranger that paid for me
the christmas lights decorating every corner and tree
mint and eucalyptus to fall asleep dreaming to
yoga mama bending to fall asleep grateful too
mi mexicana familia y mis compadres too

there is new wind in your sails
when the air cries your name
the salt on your lips
the wind on your sails

from what was a race
so tragic, so frantic
its erased to a pace
so calm here, so passive

grow forward so green babe
and carry on with light
take flowers in you babe
with strength and with might



give me all your thoughts
your worries
the warmth of the sun through the trees
the longest hugs
the saddest songs
the leaves under our feet
give me all your love
your arms
your warmth, your sleeves
i have been on the periphery for so long
give me all your thoughts
your worries, your sun, your leaves

sunsets
a deep, deep restful sleep
bread & cheese
taco tuesday and one student's obsession with it

a warm kitchen and rosemary and thyme
lemon and lime wedges dark cherry colored wine
sparkling windows glowing candles down to their ends
i like the fresh flowers from the yard the eucalyptus sprigs too
i like the wave of fall leaves falling from the sky
i like my dog on my feet and the paint on my skin
everything can be so amiss, ruffled and frazzled and seemingly
endless
work is taxing, everyone is upset
something is mishandled, everyone is upset
our shoulders are tired and pained
our forehead eyebrows eyes are strained
i take secret deep breaths and make myself forget
it's all so much it's all so much of nothing
calm
baby
calm
calm
calm
you and i in the thick of these imaginary storms

i have loved other people
so so much, my whole life
women and men children and
friends but i have never loved
another person in the same way
that i loved you, it's always true
my heart is beating
my feet are singing
because i am tired and full
and looking at things like yes, you should
and why not, be here
i feel the wind through my fingers and hair
i make myself breathe in deep the autumn air
and look at the leaves and really really look
i told my guy, really really look
because you know, it'll end
and it's just so beautiful
and you have to sip it in
