remix 069 ~ just as lost

just as lost

as he scrambled
across the pebbled shore
and scratched his stubbled chin
her aquamarine eyes
sparkled and shifted
as she witnessed the amusing scene

he hadn’t noticed
until they found their spot
along the softly flowing edge
he’d lost his keys
between here and the top
of the misty majestic ridge

so then he scoured
across the scraggly shore
like a sideways scurrying crab
while her oceanic eyes
darted and drifted
like sunlit windswept clouds

having more fun
than uma or angelina
killing bill or raiding tombs
even more cruel
than miss piggy or gonzo
kicking kermit or chopping frogs

she’s just as lost
in her thoughts and whims
and can’t get him out of her head
her mischievous eyes
gleamed and glimmered
like the keys hidden in her hand

remix 068 ~ the stillness

in her slick vented helmet
and sleek spandex style
another bicyclist and his camera
caught her quick amber squint

with nothing else better
she pedalled in pursuit
through honking asphalt lanes
and bustling concrete walks

he swerved and she swerved
a safe distance behind
he stopped and she stopped
eyes wide with curious light

he held it to his face and
focussed a few moments
before he captured the stillness
of loud colors and wild chaos

another ride another pause
he aimed high at the structure
she followed his gaze and
softly smiled at the new mural

after another few stops
the stranger reached his last
and locked up his wheels
against a cumbersome railing

a bit sad that it ended
on one of her sunnier days
but as she rolled into a turn
she caught his grin and a wave
