The RetroLounge Daily Poem Thread (Sat 5/2/2009)
The Garden

I watched a hawk stoop hard for prey.
The other day
I saw him blast
a squirrels nest,

saw the drift and splinters shiver
on morning air.
I saw the yard
empty and heard

no soundone long minute, nothing
stirred or sang. Then,
in that charged space,
one raucous jay.

Phebe Davidson

3. Oh, there you are!
I was missing you, and your poetry!

I see you were out of town, and all is forgiven!

Plus, this is a wonderful, sharply written, very evocative work!

Thank you, my dear Retro...

:hug:
