out and traveling

in blue fog at an hour

for those with insomnia

or dogs with needs


i am here.  tangerine suns

of street lights show silver

on grass, teardrops at tips

of branches, first words

about friends, not praise but

prayers of petition, promises,

wishful thinking that spirit


wants spirit in these faithful

tributes we make before

another day.  i look up, see

scraggly heads of trees, roots


trying to
