Good Read --- Poetry 2009

First rainstorms roll in to create a second
spring of sorts – plants relish rain’s onset
after summer’s extreme dryness.
My brains are in my back pocket.
So ditzy lately – forgetting simple
follow-up tasks equals disorganization:
piles of papers cover the desk and counter;
corgi hair tumbleweeds roll across the floor;
dishes stacked at angles fill the sink.
Energy rush to finish yard or outside chores
and put food up has petered out –
left me listless in the fall’s lowering light;
sunsets at 7 pm make for hibernation plans.
Allergies kick in… time to wrap in blankets
with large cups of tea and a good read.
