National Poetry Month: Day Twenty Four
Today is the day
when it just may not happen.
Tell that to the sun and shadow
playing on the front lawn
or the tiny brown birds hiding
in the tall grass of the backyard.
Tell it to the vine of morning glory
climbing so patiently up
a strand of yarn
it is almost heart-breaking.
Tell it to the familiar chaos of the desk
or the happy accident of the clean kitchen table.
Tell it to the sausage singing in the pan.
