across the street – revised

IMG_1900sunflower grows like unreal man
brick wall
quickly advancing in slow motion

face facing east
I imagine him wearing
sundial watch
2003 leather jacket
splash of Egyptian musk

it all takes time
the healing process

the many chaotic beats

the familiar unfamiliar
woven into new decade
leaves me with
desire to paint old furnishings, turquoise
in the midst of noir setting

I walk with unhurried footsteps
in hurried breeze
expression:  a delighted face
wishing I had my camera

  1. I like the image of the sundial watch…It really brings vivid imagery to your poem. Just an idea I thought of while reading your poem…Another option for the title might just be “Waiting for a Green Light.” By cutting the word “street” from the title, “green light” becomes not only a visual image, but a strong metaphor as well. Thank you so much for posting! I look forward to reading more of your poetry! 🙂

    I’m allergic to ragweed and my head feels like a ten-tonne balloon.
