Pick for May 22: Rendezvous the Reunion by Jeannie E. Roberts

Rendezvous
the Reunion

Under
this starry-eyed night

holding firmly
rowing swiftly

propelling
across opaque waters

listening
to Mendota’s

language of the lake
murmuring

rousing softly
soon      soon

silver hair
sparks the darkness

and his zest
won’t rest

until a kiss
has been anchored

reminiscently
upon the lips

of his sweetheart
anxiously awaiting

this summer evening
near the banks
of James Madison Park*

*James Madison Park is a waterfront park located on Lake Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin
