during the Perseids,

during the Perseids,
my heart wanders back to
January 2012,
predawn, unreasonably
cold, cutting
our teeth on the
and how
crisp every wish
sounded, riding
to the airport, caught
between staying
and leaving,
and disregarding
these astronomical
hints to impact events

p.s. for fun: please vote by Friday for my video entry (one vote per device). thank you, in advance!! xx, Y

it takes a constellation

it takes a constellation
of solid whole
notes and a meteor
shower of
sixteenth notes,
to engage the vital
organs, swing
open the hatch
that might be
solitude if you feel
crowded, company
if you bear seclusion.
it’s no surprise that they
wish to come in –
we are all at once
lonely and social,
yearning to strike
the right chord
