A Poetry Showcase for Robin Wright

In the Garden

A pebble travels in my shoe,	
grass stains paint my knees,
hands press dirt in earthy prayer.

Hem of light falls from the skirt of day  
as I toil beneath a thumbprint moon,
goose bumps riding my flesh.

Memory ignites the taste of smoke 
and mint from an old lover.

My mind relives the wetness of his tongue,
a soft escape from the crowded 
Greyhound bus of my mind.

Picnic

The past cartwheels into the present 
as you slip a glance at weathered pictures 
housed in your wallet. Other children 
of other days get tucked back in 

while young son and daughter 
from your new family 
grab your hand and pull.

Nearby, a wheelbarrow cast aside.
Its once red sheen now covered
in rust. White roses spit petals 
that wither and crumble.

Summer Breeze

Wind brushes wings from your hair,
wisps flutter in fluid motion,
graze blades of grass,
drink drops of dew,
rest on earth’s breast.
