morning poem, october 2, 2015



from my window


on a grey afternoon


cars and pickups

now and then a bus

glide over new pavement

leaving the city.

a girl in a pink jacket

waits on a corner

she holds something in her arms


a breeze rustles the oaks along the sidewalk

and the flow of traffic ceases

the girl waits, unmoving

the breeze blows again

and the traffic resumes

like an incoming tide.
