10 Apr 2016 – Still Life

A still life with bare trees and power line.
Fresh yellow striped asphalt, dull guardrail gray.
An azure calm ocean bay hides behind
the breeze blowing shadows that barely sway.

A moment in time – now it’s gone for good,
dissolved in the sun for the one that’s next,
and soon there’ll be leaves on the bare bleached wood,
Spring takes her sweet time composing her text.
