When Peg Laughs Like Liz  

When Peg laughs like Liz
deep woman-hearted laugh
eating beef jerky on Mesa Verde

the good hearts and smarts of women
come back to me, not guessing
any better than they at the time what love

meant, leaving them behind in sandstone time
going to my own cement, sandstone
or good mountain grave

having seen the sharp-shinned and sparrow
hawk flying and at rest, not at peace,
seeking prey from a ponderosa snag.

I left my woman behind to float
alone down the long canyon for feathers
and signs, she's making camp

the moon half full, the sun half high
sky full of planets birds and stars
I look up from the rocks

elements
housekeeping, thinking
love that's learned to love

from earlier loves
laughs remembered, heard
in the laugh of the woman who is my wife.

Helpful? Thumbs UpThumbs Down
Very good, a little cryptic, but I like it a lot. Definitely evoked an emotion from me, having recently got out of a serious relationship. Now I have no choice but to keep following this canyon I'm in once again. It's sad when love becomes a memory, but that's the way of all things I suppose. Thanks for making me sad lol, good job.
