Daffodils in February


On a street we’ve walked together

Staring through eastern gates at the sun

I dream alone as the wind pushes pink,

Twilight clouds across the sky into nite

Blood in Chicago and murder in L.A.


Thinking of you down beside me

Wondering w/ waves through ocean sands

Under the moon, reflecting in a moving sea

The stars fall around – patterns of shiny rings

Like chords strummed that make you wanna sing


Northern, wintry winds chase pink clouds into nite

Morning comes upon you as a smile from your lover’s lips

Candles glowing, a hot bath drawing, a tender, soft-guided kiss

Shaking sugar from the sugar spoon  -

Scented Jasmine tea afternoons  - Alone w/ you at last
