the sun descending
casting shadows long and vast
on sunnyside’s past

the pines lullaby
soft and low, a picnic shade
bathed in sunset’s glow

wrapped inside a baby’s bib
found when grandma died

street theater spreading peace
all you need is love

watching a drifting iceberg
float past frozen toes

echoes from geckos
revivals, southern bibles
overgrown tombstones
