In the early morning hours, I heard the pattering feet from the kittens running in my neighbors apartment. I smell roses as I wash my face. The cool water warming to my routine. Then I notice the clouded skies and hear the crow caw. The kids are being picked up by the school bus, it’s yellow color heralding the morning. The grays and browns of the trees seem subtle and welcoming as I walk my dog. There is a small frost on the grass and I notice a speckled sparrow by the lonely evergreen.
Charming clouds that cover
Warm and cool moments are calm
And I see a bird
