misty day

Misty Day 

Glancing out of the window I see the potted plant 
on the sill and the house on the other side of
the road… the light is fading and the plant looks as
sad as a whitewashed wall in rain… its whiteness 
was an illusion caused by the sun. 

Mist of grief encircles olive trees there are blank 
tears on my almond tree´s spindly twigs, yet inside
each droplet I see a tiny world reflecting my own,
only with greater incorruptibility of the untested. 
And far away, as a whisper, a mother sings a lullaby.

    Dear Jan, this one worries me. My friend, a droplet now on the edge of an olive tree. No more scooter days. Give us a wink in your next one, so I know the child is there. love, Kathy
