The Handkerchief

I asked for a tissue

He gave me a handkerchief

I asked for a crumb

He invited me to a feast

I hid my face in shame

Not daring to look at His

Fearing anger

When all the while

His eyes danced

With delight

His arms outstretched

Waiting for me

To come home

By the water today

I just need to be by the water today.

Some how I managed to park

Under the tree

With a huge eagle in it.

It reminds me

When I am not even aware of it

You are watching over me.

 

Got my first whiff of blackberries

When I got into the car,

Promises of juicy delight

Later in the summer.

 

He is gathering a crowd

The eagle.

No need to be dramatic.

He just is.

So regal

On his branch at the top of the tree.

 

Me?

Sometimes I need to be dramatic

Just making sure somebody

Is watching.

 

That is what I love about this town

You can drive down to the sea,

Park under a tree with an eagle at the top

Watch a ferry load up

And then a smelly, noisy train comes rumbling by.
