Travelers Welcome

by Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal
Flirting with happiness,
I’d most likely be struck by lightning.
This morning there was a moment,
but it was just my imagination.

A tiny smile escaped
for a moment and the moment
vanished. As the morning gave way
to afternoon and afternoon to night

I saw a bird eating magnolia
flowers. The bird quickly fled
when it saw me stare. Taking
the fragrant flower
in its belly, I followed

the little bird with my eyes.
I waited for lightning to 
strike me down where I stood.
