    a breeze blows IMG_4090
    across the front
    porch of the heart —
    the song settles
    like an old dog
    circling until
    it’s just right
    the sadness hangs
    like the ferns
    we will put up
    once it gets warmer
    the last aromas
    of dinner have
    followed us out
    and will find
    their way into
    the darkness once
    we go in to sleep
    but not just yet . . .
    there’s still
    another verse
    to sing another
    star to fall
    not just yet . . .

      Love this — feel like there’s a song hidden in there… Blessings Milton!

      I have a daily poetry club to which I send a new poem every day. This one just went on the list – as other of your poems have done in the past.
