Morning Affair



The palm tree winked.
I looked again.
A solo palm in the distance,
rising above buildings—
yes, glittering.

Sunlight hung tinsel,
golden, on its fronds.
And in the breese,
its glitz waved flutter-sun
my way.

What flicker! What flash!
I waved back, of course.
The palm, a-sparkle,
and I, a-dazzled,
conducted our morning affair.
