From the Balcony

 
from the balcony
a sea of spring green
sweeps to the horizon 
Barbara
newly gathered shells
are laid on fine linen
Karen
such intricacy
this masterpiece embroidered 
by candlelight
Barbara
ten fingers, ten toes
we count each one twice
Karen
sharing their joy
with sushi for all
under the shade
Barbara
the sound of the gong
the Master’s deep bow
Karen
up from below–
no longer trapped
free to breathe fresh air
Barbara
tropical storms
raging on in Manila
Karen
at sunset
sips of cheap whiskey
with hibiscus tea
Barbara
strange images
distilled in this moment
Karen
inexplicable praise
and rewards for a poem
I didn’t write
Barbara
clusters of stars and
still this cold, cold
Karen

a spring junicho by Barbara A. Taylor (Australia) and Karen Cesar (USA)
