Everyday Joys: My Wife

She makes me laugh (I love to laugh)
She makes me think (I need to think)
She makes happy (most the time)
Although, I can’t predict her —

It’s love (and love’s most everything)
And joy (and that is hard to find)
Though she says ’twas the OTHER way,
I’m very glad I picked her

waterslide

count to three,
push off together:
no worries,
no stresses,
just a straight blue elation
you still had in you

we may lose
much we ever had,
but reclaim
in a rush
what we never really lost,
just quit accessing

together,
bodies and spirits,
unleashing,
letting go:
unity, simplicity,
in wind and water
