"Fuego de Gitana"
by Carrol Buntin
Tonight the offshore breezes leave a
message meant for me.
A path across the moonlit way awaits my company.
The cool, caressing wind awakes this
gypsy fire again,
and gently fans the flame that flickers from a depth within.
Reaching for a door that's closed until the proper time;
Watching through the porthole, patience seems a pain of mine.
Reminiscing stirs the embers. Warmed,
we'll both soon say,
"Adios, vaya con Dios", getting underway.
