affair thwarted

foam raged stoic rocks
bridge caked with muck ~ peach blossom
fell ~ curves entranced eyes

glances sharp as scythes
fresh wheat for noodles ~ best slurped
when steamed open young

restless dreamscape chides
rounded moon sneaks through window
futon yields on back
pillowing head upon down
dew highlights laughing footprints


bring back privilege

with abstract societal
equality push
good old days were much safer
with ghetto segregation

it starts to build

ground fog swirls beneath
velvet crystal chandelier
diffuse saffron light
commence morning performance
an ovation of birdsong

Ovation: ORIGIN early 16th cent. ( sense 2): from Latin ovatio(n-), from ovare ‘exult.’ The word had the sense ‘exultation’ from the mid 17th to early 19th cent.
