"Many paths lead
from the foot of the mountain,
but at the peak
we all gaze
at the single bright moon."

big purple rainy sky
drenches my heart...
and me

Photo by S. Auberle
Because it was a shiny morning
out there, drawing on the sidewalk,
and the chalk felt so right in her hand,
because the boy was at his finest--
blue-eyed, dimpled and grubby
as only a five year old can be,
because he melted her heart
when he said that the man he drew
has only seven hairs on his head
and I have a thousand
because the sun shone down upon them
and somewhere, out in the desert,
a wren sang his cheery song,
the woman knew, beyond all doubt,
this was a perfect moment.
