for S.G.

after Rebecca Hazelton

My husband writes me eloquent haiku

My husband in the backyard
watering each plant for three minutes
his kind spirit communicates to the roses, the apples,
the avocados, the bougainvillea

My husband surrounded with thyme, basil,
tomatoes, parmigiano cheese
cooking chicken parmigiana in the kitchen
remembering his beloved Italian-born father

My husband carefully checking the beams,
measuring the paintings
gracefully hung up The Kiss,
the Terrace of a Cafe at Night

My husband washes my car
the soap bubbles sparkle with his thoroughness
also washes away my insecurities
revealing my true colors in a rainbow spectrum

My husband gazes at me with his soulful blue eyes
which forever sends me to ecstasy.
