‘Rainbow Times’ – An Original Poem By Red Robbin

Rainbow Times

 

I sit on bleached cotton under an azure sky
dreaming the Dream that came true,
shaded by fragrant pink blossoms
I gaze upon endless leafy acres

The horizon bleeds into the sanction
of majestic steel mountains;
Bays and chestnuts we’ve ridden a thousand times graze
while the crimson barn you built stabs the landscape

You saunter toward me wrapped in a carefree cloud
wearing that loose white shirt and burnt sienna slacks,
looking strong and sun-baked like a vibrant Sahara;
You smile at me as I catch your eye

Bringing my favorite red wine and your mother’s silver goblets,
you sink into the black iron bench next to me and pour
I reach for the large paisley platter (a wedding gift)
loaded and steaming with hot garden greens

We share ourselves as we share our meal
and find something new again after all these years
I’m awake in this Dream and find it’s more
penetrating than my imagination had allowed

***

Now… The sun a glowing gold coin in the dawning sky
The dewy grass lays misty as in a flea market found watercolor
Swathed in the white terrycloth you gave me
I lift my morning mug to my unpainted lips

And I think of you…

If I knew that day was adieu
I would have said a big Thank You

I sit on our black iron bench and review the Dream I had been living
that came so very long overdue and ended too soon.

‘Trumpet Faces’ – An Original Poem By Red Robbin

Trumpet Faces

 

Having long lean necks and heads forth cocked
Springing straight up from grass so green
All staring ahead as if shell-shocked
How do they know which way to lean?

Crowned around with buttery petals
And in the midst a jutting bloom
Rich soil and fresh rain give them mettle
Bend and drink in their sweet perfume

Plants in sun hats on trumpet faces
Calling out to all of nature
Coinciding with baseball laces
Spring has arrived this is for sure!

Blossoms of cream, lemon and orange
Begin to flower in April
Atriums boast these within their fringe
Trumpet faces of daffodils
