THE CHOICE/S 14 - 24

14)
dead of night
a ragged wind
tosses roses
no longer
soaked with sun
mother's voice
made of dreams

15)
always greetings
from her eyes
&
fondness
in her heart
no mossy monument
to you
dear girl
just butterflies
and a breeze
of bonhomie

16)
a handful
of flowers
in golden light
breathless whispers return
as salve
in the night

17)
permission to sleep
as the sun
comes up
a beautiful warmth
&
slanting shadows
fishing for God
in this
secret place

18)
gentle fingers
lead the dance
love prays
for love
once more

19)
glimpses of
blue mountains
leaf-patterned hands
the sweetness of
just being
la dolce farniente

20)
evening
benediction
of kisses
vite! vite!
half serious
half amused
une amourette
overtakes
the heart

21)
sitting still
morning glory
engages mind
fruit of
non-thinking
another day
extraordinary
in its own way

22)
an opportunity
to drink-in
the cosmos
to hear myself
talking to
the night -sky
what's on offer
sweet-heart?

23)
blue eyes
stop talking
in the dark
night air
go ahead
return to God
nothing left unsaid

24)
heart confers
with stars
questions go
begging
in the night
