Sunday Whirl: Toes and Basil

twine, conjure, nest,
carry, spirits, bend
through, curl, trinkets,
neglect, cap, back, sigh

Toes and Basil

I can't neglect
the sun as it curls
and twines and bends
through the basil.

I carry my camera
outside and sit
in a nest of gold doubloons
feeling rich.

I remove my lens cap,
focus on my toes,
conjure the photography
spirits, and click,

click, click, this way,
that way, near, far,
hoping to catch
bokeh trinkets.

I hear the door open
then my husband
rubs his hand
across my back.

"I didn't know where
you were. Aren't you
going to watch
the car auction with me?"

I glance at the light,
sigh, then head back
inside. He smiles
his own sun at me.

What a lovely moment, from solitude to the wonder of love shining from your husband's face. I love the title, too.

What a stunningly beautiful piece and how lucky you are to have your own sun to warm you.

Being and doing things together is the ultimate, even witnessing car auctions together! Nicely Linda!

From your own shining moment to accepting the shine of another's sun. Beautiful.
