Our Hill



The breeze blows the grass
that he's ripped from the top of our hill
Our bikes strewn below
The sky dark orange and blue with no sun or moon
between day and night
Skinny long clouds float by, tinged in aqua and gold
Cars headlights coming on, passing us on our hill
He wears his bright colored camp shirt, dotted with
the same pizza sauce thats on his cheek
as he rips that grass out of the hill
His sweet innocence glowing in the dimming day
We sit quietly, taking in summers free show on our hill
He asks a question, that is totally relevent
Does it get much better than this, I ask myself
Time passes unnoticed, happily, peacefully
Our arms grow goosebumps as the breeze cools us
Reminding us night has come
And without a word, we carefully trek down
with the satisfaction of drinking in the passing of
a summer dusk
on our hill

Just a little reminder that you last posted on July 17. This delay is no way to get that book deal and Amy Adams playing you on the silver screen.
