It’s Come to This

By Dianne Moritz

Once
she sipped daiquiris
by the pool
high above Hollywood
gazing down at the peasants.
Eucalyptus
shade dappled
her soft, tanned skin
as she kissed his lips
under the California sun.
There
he made promises
to love her forever
and ever and ever
until the twelfth of never.
Today
she lives in the east
writing … remembering
dreams of long ago
when now was all
everything she wanted to know.

        
Dianne writes from her home in New York and misses California every day. Her poems have appeared in Earth’s Daughters, Long Island Quarterly as well as online in Adelaide Literary, The Haiku Foundation and Haiku Universe.
