Blooming Entertainments Pt. 1

(see: Poetic Bloomings, Entertaining Summer, Day 1)

Summer Breeze

“And I come home from a hard day’s work
“And you’re waiting there, not a care in the world”

Summer Breeze –Jim Seals, Dash Crofts

Last Sunday, while we washed dishes
and waited to watch Game of Thrones

a rock fell down the face of a Yukon mountain,
knocked tons of pine to the ground

with a thunder and whoosh. And we
were here in Tennessee, a hot night.

Flat from a steam-ironed, long summer day,
we were arguing like heat rash. Being peevish

and misunderstood turned sulky,
worn-down still, and silent. We were separate

as two windows side by side and in pain.
Then the wind chime on the porch made a sound.

Almost a plucked string. Or a mountain letting go.






Always good to hear from friends
