Fairfield Avenue ~ my first poem

Walking long to the essential


Fair field

Glinting cut-crystal-challis-brilliant summer afternoon

Recalling the morning

Soul meeting soul

Hungry for Your Love touch and gaze


Found deeper

Expression in shared thought

And so


Overflows flesh




In the fair field

Half-century of being

Finally down decades

Lay back childlike on perfumed grass

To lift face to vapor mist clouds

Just now masking sunshine

How many years since this child play?

Neglected play

Forgotten play

An artist’s game different with maturity

No longer hunting hares and lambs in cotton candy clouds floating through opal sky

This time

More metaphoric visions

More abstract thoughts

Up on

High breezes

Painting pastel strokes

Fast and slower

Eyes entranced by wing-feather

Cloud edge wisps

Rhythmic movements

Tendrils break free and rejoin

Come Together

First meeting

First kiss

Long separated jigsaw puzzle pieces

Found again


In the interlocking re-union

Timeless inevitable moments of

Anam Cara

Too soon

Gusts blow off the muse

Revealing blinding sun

Moments of truth lost to reality

Shared words




Back on the path from fair field

Down Fairfield Avenue home

Mourning morning

Dove and blood red songbird

Sing requiems for


Found and lost before it occurred
