#AwakeAugust, Friday, August 26, 2016



city living - window to window
overhearing a neighbor’s loss
this hot summer day

only after hearing the cicada shrill
do I realize the silence
that came before

late night barefoot stroll
I can still feel the prickle
where the cicada crawled over my foot

searching from window to window
to see the August moon
catching only glimpses through the trees

pulling weeds in the scorching sun
for just a moment
I smell the shore

carefully, I move the spider
to the open window
from the comfort of my home

drifting off to sleep
I feel the footsteps on my blanket
of a cat long gone

the park is full of people
heads bowed, searching...
for Pokemon

trimming the blue leaves
from the "tinted" daisies
as if cutting wasn't enough

discovering the hole in the garden --
the skunk's faint odor remains
