8-3-1

It’s a kaleidoscope

Twist  Bang

and something sparkles

 

It’s a 10,000 piece jigsaw puzzle

each piece only fits each piece

 

It’s rubbing off old skin

and leaving it behind

so we can see each other in the light

 

It’s a road trip

It’s the quiet ride back home

after a long vacation

It’s only 10 more miles

 

It’s arms and legs

that can’t let go

Mornings that last

until you’re 2 minutes

too late

And it’s squirming in your seat

until the day is done

 

It’s a rainbow in your sprinkler

Shooting star

Keep your eyes wide open –

you only get so many wishes

 

It’s the biggest fish you can’t catch

 

And only ever-after

 

When you’re using your fingertips

to write the words

on sweat-wet slick skin

in the sunrise

 

It’s slow moving honey

Sweet and clinging

Saturating

 

It’s unwritten plays

waiting to be blocked in bed

 

It’s forgetting disappointments

ignoring warnings

and giving the finger to heartbreak

 

It’s the green light of Spring through the trees

The warm of Summer on your face

The first smell of Fall creeping in

It’s being curled up in a flannel blanket

in front of a bonfire

at a Winter solstice festival

 

It’s a gospel choir –

breaks your heart

in the high notes

 

It’s not you

It’s not me

It might be us

 

It’s a daydream you don’t dare call a plan

 

It’s on the tip of your tongue

 

It’s Scrabble

without a dictionary

and only 8 letters

3 words

and 1
