in the gloaming

by jhon baker

the air is not tense with rain

swelled clouds pass over

leaving only blue sky

——–

spirited glow of sun

leveling with dying grass

casting long shadows

——–

fireflies dance to make love

already

in yearning

remember the fallen

by jhon baker

I have a headache.

I’ve had a headache to varying degrees for three days. this is regardless of it being memorial day weekend.

bright sun now in late afternoon casting long shadows of birds across neatly trimmed lawns.

I resist the urge to glance skyward at low flying helicopters.

the beautiful muse, my wife, is the grill master during this long three days. I only confirm the degradation of gas lines and she uses charcoal lighter fluid.

according to one weather source it hit 95 today.

remember the fallen. be reverent. strike up the band. we dance for others.

be lunatic love luck lost in sacred reveille.
