Stuck behind a light

that goes red green red three times —

I breathe mindfully.


Suddenly, hundreds

of crows fill the sky. Hundreds.

I mean it. Hundreds.


From where? Going where?

Their doings are a puzzle

I wish I could solve.


Then maybe, maybe,

I could also figure out

which path I should choose.

On the way…

Sunday morning drive

wispy leafless trees pass us –

we watch quietly

.

We get there…

my child covered in

chocolate – a grandmother

scowls hard at us both

.

Our way home…

“She must be from Mass.”

I complain as we walk past

hardy Marigolds

of my part in the day’s wrongs –

wind blows falling leaves

I can’t help but watch

through my rear view mirror. Will the

squirrel make it across?
