Balm and Forget-Me-Not

A crossword, a four letter word for salve, beer
One legal pad,  two packs of boot-leg Camel Blue, a pink pen

I look up the word "mystic" in my pocket dictionary
Carefully print the definition and  look up "truth"

I take off my bra all Flashdance-style
An entire day has passed and  I am alone in my dining room
Still very much aware of the sparks we made

Something new has my attention
It's an eleven letter word for a blue wildflower

Nothing hurts right now

Wait out the Winter

Winter bleeds into the Spring
March lets it

Birds caught in the crosswind
Perch and wait

Pools collect and branches bend
The change begins
