the night sky

for Barbara

through eave a star lit night
bathe shimmer bright
moon dust fill a most
awesome handsome site
devil may care to
witness day somber gray bird in flight
worm in her mouth
call of babies wanting mama to feed them
warm in their twiggy nest an appetite for
grub and pest
the one you love the best
in the cycle of survival
my pet
the angel and regret
a summer set morn
blackbirds in a field of corn
your face is worn
like an autumn song
catch a cold that
linger long
i love you right or wrong
in my heart never gone.
