Claiming all that passed,
sunset craves the day.
Silly. Nobody
owns poetry.

Owling
.
Wiser at sunrise
runaway owlets
returning home
.
Workday
.
Drizzling into
the day, sweat of an
overworked sky.
.
Windstorm
.
Nighttime cherry tree,
impending windstorm.
Pang of letting go.
.
Burden
.
Bearing the burden
of all the right things,
honesty’s fragile fingers.
