December



DECEMBER


The trees are all bare.

I can see the whole sky.

The high clouds sit still

while the low ones scoot by


in a rustling wind

that tickles porch chimes

as the wink of a moon watches

silent and wise.

Autumn Cento


 

Autumn Cento 

Little grey dreams
holding up the hawk:
a blur in the periphery.
I’ve little time left.
Everything’s been said.
My heart is so giant this evening
following old
migratory patterns that would have been better left alone.
Someone raised a camera to capture us both in a moment;
the only gift I have to give.
