The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

In Our Backyard Eden

In our backyard Eden
As the world’s din receded
I enjoyed the patio view
In the late afternoon with you
And a delicious foretaste
Of the seasons' change
Time itself seemed to be preparing
To tack back hard the other way
With the light trending 
Decisively north  

And when you brought in what 
Remained of the tomato crop I felt
A hint of the season’s first major storm
Only just then taking shape
Far off the Gulf Coast

And thought about making
Some sauce of our own
Or just getting sauced
Because what else can you do
Except batten down the hatches
And make yourself good and ready
In anticipation of an atmospheric
Disruption of the most extreme sort
