LEAF MASQUERADING

Folder: 
BARD'S SHARDS

 

Between the blinds

I spy the action outside

 

I see an object

moving along the awning

outside my window

 

I can’t tell

if it’s a bird

or possibly a mouse

 

a tail hovers

just above the gutter

and I feel

a twinge of discomfort

 

It’s disconcerting

a rodent that close

to home

 

I keep looking

waiting for movement

waiting

waiting to learn

it’s true identity

 

a gust of wind

blows through

and a leaf

masquerading

as a possible rodent

flutters to the ground

ever revealing

my absurd, warped vision
