ONCE THE FLOWERING OF THOUGHT

 

Once the flowering 

of thought

is underway,

the season will adjust

to the new moon

and we’ll hope 

for stars to peep

through the clouds.

 

Proper thought

yields to poetry

and the muse takes over

 

Wonderful things happen in the mud

as a pigeon steals my beer

 

and the seagulls
somehow yet manage

to swipe my ice cream

 

The inate silliness

The inate chilliness

 

The rain curtailed

my walk

and I just stayed home

chirping away

on a computer

pining about the summer

that hasn’t been.

In The Mud Stealing Pigeons

I hate it when they steal my beer. - :)

It's terrible.  And I think

It's terrible.  And I think they're being paid to do it.  Of course I'm just paranoid.
