Humming Georgia

driving home from the church gig

I come upon the melting moon…

creme brule with a spoonful already eaten…

just for a moment – a pine tree silhouette carves

the moon’s surface and I realize

I’ve never actually seen this sight before,

though I’ve heard the lyric and sung it many times.

but tonight, our love comes home to me,

‘sweet and clear, like moonlight through the pines’

home, yes

almost home…Image

brass quintet pumping away

little kids always in the very middle of the crowd

running, with their arms way up

into the palest blue of blues mountain air

late afternoon sun stretched out

like a big scruffy dog

belly cooling over the bricks

now the band shifts to a gentle oompah

a dalmation watches

his owner pump up his bike tire

in time with the music.

from my collection of poems

“Looking for Hymn”
