Red Skies of Night

From native acacias, local sycamore
and tamarisk trees come homes;  
Universe Houses, places we sail  
from red skies of morning:  
swells, storms, and loneliness  
To joined timbers forming walls;  
drawings piercing their frames  
under a roof retaining warmth  
Coffee table books, photography  
bound leaflets of splayed poetry  
Hand-written words curled as  
autumn leaves across pages  
An open floor plan, resplendent  
increments of light and shadow  
creative in movement  
Many years have passed  
our lives, but those remaining  
foretell great happiness;  
Their red skies of night  
a sailor's delight, coming  
forth to carry Us Home  
For J, my Heart's Compass,  always. . .
