you always react
when the kettle whistles …
do you respond so slowly
when I call?

  five decades
knowing only these shores ...
we can name the stars
but not the wildflowers
scattered at our feet

over patches on his jeans …
hard to believe
we’re still together
after all these years

his promise
that he won't get angry
repeated again …
the flight of a distant drone
mingles with the hiss of rain

daffodils and primroses
such yellow
on a day I should be
singing the blues

    I stand at the top
of a barren hill
to set you free …
flinging bits of memories
into the mouths of birds
