October morning

“October morning”

Above the
shadows
orange light
glows on
droopy
hemlock
tips

Higher still
ducks flap
in erratic
formation
lit in gold
from below
against clear
white
blue
sky

Son snores
unselfconsciously
in the next room
door open

Last
night’s wind
makes a
final push
against
shedding
cedars

I sit
sigh
bask
grateful
for this
October
morning
that
needs
nothing
