Window at the Abbey

Window at the Abbey

Through the window I see
the sun fire up
for the last time today.
There are jays

in the trees near the meadow,
crows in the grass
I cut with a scythe
early this morning.

Still on my platter
corn from the fields,
scallions, tomatoes,
bell pepper and cheese.

I'll remain at my table
with lemon and tea
and look out on the land
that surrounds me.

The psalms a monk 
gave me this morning
I'll read for an hour
before sleeping.
