My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

“floppy hat”

 

in a dream or a memory

I can’t tell which

maybe it was yesterday

she is silhouetted by the blue-sky sun

in the morning of a warm summer day

a soft breeze smells of the sea and her perfume

and I take a breath

of the scented morning air

I strain to see her smile

a form in the shadow

under that floppy hat she wears

from time to time when the mood strikes

her face hidden in the blinding sun

but my eye can trace

the pleasant line of her neck

to the alluring curve

of her bare shoulder kissed by the sun

my jealous lips

envious of that lucky star

and the breeze

and the perfume

and that floppy hat she wears

from time to time when the mood strikes

    Absolutely amazing. I love the voice that reads the poem. I like very much “my jealous lips envious of that lucky star” ..
