A humble room, the bed is pushed up against the green wall. The iron head board bobs with every childish wiggle.
The half dresser half wardrobe was the shiniest thing in the room. The most facinating for us as kids was my mom’s pedal operated Singer sewing machine. That was at the front of the room, near the window. The daylight was better there.
At dusk, the kerosene lamp sits on the dinner table offering light through its glass shade. On it the white inscription, “HOME SWEET HOME”. As we sat in bed, waiting for my dad we can barely contain our excitement. It was time for bedtime stories with pictures cast in shadows against the wall.

duck quacks, wiggles his tail

sits on lilly-pad
edge of pond
Yesterday, I went walking at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Everything has sprung!! I came upon this show at the lilly pond where there was a visitor.
The attendant said there’s usually two of them that visit every day.
And that they didn’t live there
It was amazing to watch!!
He said a harty goodbye before taking flight.
on a windless day
six circles take shape
a pebble skips
a moment of beauty
perfection in nature
smooth stone skips on pond
string of circles in its wake
a hot summer day
