Morning Images

While silent peacocks simply fade away

into the stubble of the barley field,

it’s just a common, early autumn day

with early morning fog. A Stellar jay

is raucous, momentarily revealed,

while silent peacocks simply fade away.

A squirrel in a California bay

chatters at me, then it too is concealed.

It’s just a common, early autumn day

and soon the fog will lift. I hear the neigh

of yearlings, (Memories: the past congealed)

while silent peacocks simply fade away.

(The arboretum, brilliant sunlight, May.)

That silent gaping wound has long since healed.

It’s just a common, early autumn day.

She would not tell me why she would not stay,

but that’s resolved, has long since been annealed;

while silent peacocks simply fade away.

It’s just a common, early autumn day.
