weary traveler

light, scurrying along eons
arrives at a focusing mirror
having taken light years
to reach us, weak and faint
although a full galaxy in itself
i suppose 23 million
could tire
just about anyone

not a hot-weather gal

(a pantoum)

i dread the heat coming
spring is too short
growing green fades to dry brown
skin glistens with sweat

spring is too short
eyes squint, trying to see distance
skin glistens with sweat
long for a cool drink

eyes squint, trying to see distance
growing green fades to dry brown
longing for a cool drink
i dread the heat coming
