Orange and black
Flutters around my garden
Stops to sample the lavender
Check out my assortment of weeds

Just a visitor
Heading to the coast
Like snow birds who shun slush and cold
head south to Florida

Do butterflies gather in large klatches
Play bingo and maj jong
While away the days until
they migrate home?





The Empty Rocker

Ethan Allen rocker
Brown with gold stencils
Spindles and curved arms
I rock forward and back
Toes pointing, head resting
Swing set swaying
Row boat rocking
I sit for a spell
Travel somewhere
Floor boards creaking
Memories distant
