A Cloudy Day


She weaves in and out
Of the days filling the lonesome
Vacuum that has become my life
Talking chosen with words
Carefully we speak
Of things at hand and inwardly
Glances deeper than the iris
Leave wonders that I notice
Breaking the tide of the day
Like jewels of a thought
That liven the senses
Even if only briefly
Moving to the next moment
Trusting there'll always
Be another chance to enjoy
The invisible touch
That she gives

    Trusting there'll always

WINE comes in at the mouth
