unplanned

we Watch july’s final sunset from a Hill
cheap thrill
golden full moon rimmed by stars that spill
melting into the blue waves’ sound
surround
a striped sky globed protectively around
like this small beach town is
all there isIMG_1668pink
drink, tipped matches,
tea room, my mind attaches
Marcia’s cats are mischievous
fishing grey smiles and jungle spotted thievery
palm trees
a reminder never to drink alone
from a framed man and his talismans
a bar cut into thirds
how is it that a painting speaks of its creator without words?IMG_1670
winnie-the-pooh walls and wooden beams
sing us to sleep, but the morning steams
all sunshine, hot tea, and muffin crumbs
you call me Lady
my hands go numb

IMG_1669

amber honey, thin syrup, glass bottles, iced tea
buttery rolled lobster in the clouds
artichoke hearts and vitamin d
a soulful walk to Hammonasett
tiny towels steeped in sand
our day in lists, firsts and new places we’ve kissed
all so perfectly unplanned.
