two for marketa

 

 

the way

 

my three years with you 

have taught me

and brought me   insights beyond   

 

but including   the physical

without a word

of reproach   or even suggestion   

 

you have created   in me   a subtle shift

from the way of the east   

the way of han shan   reflection and meditation   

 

which has not brought me peace

to your pragmatic   

eastern-european way   which has      

 

inner-strength   self-reliance   resilience   

hard work   faith in myself   and something greater

blues guitar

 

 

dearest marketa

 

let me lay you

across my lap

strum your strings

 

finger your frets   

tickle you a tune

would you like that   

 

how’s your pitch

a sweet high-end   

a deep-moaning bass

 

do you have a blue note

waiting to bend and wail   

let me pluck you

 

and we’ll see

what the blues is all about

 

love

lynn
