What If…

what makes a life worth living. © anniefahy 2017

What if you came over
Instead of the blinking word,
we could have tea
In the backyard
with the sun?

The gold finches are here
Glimmering brilliance and wonder.
What if we listened together
To the locks within that lift
the flow of blood

From heart to head,
like the Panama Canal
so that the head knows:
what makes a life worth living?

The head could load
it’s frantic thoughts
into the belly
of the rocket
bound for Mars.

We could share this
tea, sun and birds;
Heartbeats and breath
fragrant tea and gardenia,

our thoughts part of the flow
of breath and blood.
Moments organized
for our pleasure
instead.
