morning calmness
a cormorant circles
the patrol boat


outdoor concert
the singer’s falsetto
reaches the stars


almost spring
the first letter in spanish
from my foster child


half moon
sandwiched between stars
the flashback of my youth


endless rain
a salesman at the cafe
slowly sips coffee


chilly morning
ambulance siren
followed by another


autumn train
the mother & daughter
silently play cat’s cradle


italian restaurant
our dinner tinted
with the old film music


end of summer sale
all the shoppers’
untanned arms
