in the rustle



Street Light by jose alhambra


in the rustle

in the rustle
listen
to the shirr of
petals falling
on the skittered
back of startled
creatures burrowing
deeper into the
sweet green leaves
growing brittle
just a little
day by day

listen
as the cerulean marble
shifts on stalwart axis
some
held tight
others
flung into the
ever night
all
in the rustle
below, beneath,
beyond
the buzzing
business of
living …

listen…

  1. Ohhhhh. THIS, especially:
    "listen

    petals falling
    on the skittered
    back of startled"

    YES.

    1. Awww thanks De - just about to shut down for the night - working on Kaitlin - and caught your comment just in time for a smile and a sign that it is time to call it a night and as said in a Seinfeld epsiode "leave on a high note" Thanks again and enjoy the weekend. :)
