Signing off, the Sun

Dangling legs

dipping into the dirt, wet, sticky

they sat

man and woman

little shrieks of laughter escaped

a scoot here and a hoot there

she did not move

nor did he raise a finger

or  his voice

instead  throwing their heads back

they lost themselves in laughter

catching each others eyes

they laughed again

loud, louder, loudest

the sun was setting

a glorious day he wound up

beginning to sign off

he stopped to watch

such joy, so pure, so true

and sighed

my days are brighter said the Sun

when love is true and pure.

Staying in the now

Alone she sat

brooding over what was nought

and all she got

was ennui

thinking over and over

till he came forward

to gather her in his arms

holding tightly

he whispered

you, my thought

you, love

shall live in the present

stay with me, stay in the now,stay here

and she turned to see his nose dipped in tomato sauce

bright,salty and red

and she burst out laughing

-the perils of a long nose, haha,she roared!
