With Sarah Jayne out back on the cello,
only her stool, and its vanishing varnish
speak of comfort as she covers Yo-Yo Ma
The porch light’s red bulb sighs an inviting rose quartz

In spent fields, ravens glean grain as my baby and I walk
Black waves of them flutter about us unashamed, as she tells me;
"The sunset is coming soon, Blue, all I had I gave to you"
I softly laugh, recalling her pleasurable, if not profitable, sacrifice

"And when the stars come out, baby...what of us then?"
She looks at me, easily taking my hand, and laughs...softer still
“It’s a dream, Bluesy, washing over you and I, and when the stars come out,
Sarah Jayne’s cello is quieted as the porch light flickers..."

Maybe it is just me and the early hour...
but dang Bluesy, I feel like you sneaked up and cut my heart out and handed it to me on a platter. It took a minute for it to hit me and when it did it was so sad. You do good work my friend. ~L

Yes, Miss Pinky, reality is a seasonal thing.
At least, I've always found it to be that way.

Thank you so much!
