sunday 10/26

Posted to Poetry

leaves flutter over the street slowly.
a windy day,
but silent in my car

sunday morning:
waste the day sleeping
or watch television?

sparrows migrating
from valley stream.
i wanna go too.

don't get used to them.
warm october mornings,
nondescript rain.

little dog
with a sprained leg,
what spirit you have!

computer screens
and telephones.
dead signals.

i got a message from you on my cell phone
seemed reluctant, but said you missed me
somewhere, a flower is fed with sunlight
and opens up. an iceberg shatters,
crashes into the ocean, and
i feel less alone
as i fold my laundry.
