Let’s not plan a formal luncheon
Hot dogs & buns, just the ticket.
This is the fourth day of sunshine
& it’s January! Rejoice!
So let’s pile high the dry driftwood,
these twigs, those branches, that cedar.
Let’s make a strong hot fire, yes,
& for dessert, some clementines.
Let’s toast both eagles cuddled up
out on the reef towards Japan.
