It was a Saturday evening

Cooler summer breeze blew

Clouds intervened the sun

You wore a new gold dress

And in one glace- stole me

I was in the near shadows 

Beneath cottonwood trees

You were across the street     

Your smile and the laughter

Overwhelmed my heartbeats     

Oblivious to my surrounds

I crossed without- looking     

Horns honked; people balked

All that mattered… was you
