A chill greets me

With winds talking

And leaves yawning

From limb to

Earth, as the day wakes

With a tickle and

A jolt, knowing this

Moment cannot promise

To hold tomorrow

Because life depends

On simple things,

Baked apples, walks in the neighborhood,

A night with a movie,

Letting a loveseat cradle

Hearts as finger tips trace the years,

Trying to find the woman

I am in how you see

Fine as a bud on a leaf,

What blooms or withers,

What feeds earth

And courts sunshine, cloud cover;

All meaning drifts

From above, cleansing as rain, angry

As thunder, dangerous as lightening,

Life baptizes our vow

Made breath

By breath, for better and worse, till

Death do us part.

About Edie Lazenby

Edith Lazenby's first love is poetry. Her second is yoga. Life unrolls in ways she could have never have imagined. She loves to love and live life daringly. Leap and the net will appear is how the saying goes but they don't tell you what to do after it disappears. Edith lives in Baltimore with her cat, Cucumber. She works all the time, it seems, these days. Life is good. Blessings are many.
