Cocktails



Cocktails

Wit and Charm attend
I am established alone with a smile

Self-conscious with doubtful eyes
I choose a window for what is said

Waiting for a scene to escape
for what seems like a trial

Conversations racing nowhere
Jogging for position; Oh my aching head!

"hi" "do you think" "why yes I do"
Sleepy fill words bump the walls

Where is the common reason that drives me
to follow; to lead; to something

Maybe to gardens with weeds and leaves
Sunny reflections and birds sounding

Away to green and brown and wind and sea
Blowing, floating seeds dusting the air
Nature busy and generous with life
