Cloudy Afternoon

thumb_IMG_9214_1024

Dishwasher lulling with its low

harummm rum rum

 

Slight chill through

through the space in the open sliding glass door

 

blankets cover two

a cozy “L” on the couch

Read aloud

Poems by Jack to Miss Stretchberry

bring thoughts of the dog,

My Buddy

back

in the house

I left two years ago

 

Gazing out across the city from this third story apartment

at this seaside town

I love so much

I see a WALL

move through the harbor

down the channel

toward Angel’s Gate and the open sea

stacked deep and wide

with containers bound for China

 

Brinnnn brinnn brinnn

in the distance a helicopter circles the coast

Dishwasher drains

Whoosh, Glurp, Whoosh.

 

Eyes close

Quiet breathing

Rest

    So peaceful! All the quiet noise in the background are somewhat soothing as your mind moves from one thought to the next. This was your soundtrack of this moment.
