Weather Poem

David Barnes
 

 Passing The Groom To His Bride
 
 I remember the swingset
 and a metal treehouse
 delivering him to imaginary places,
 but you are real and he has never
 ascended so high or stayed so long.
 

Lazy Way out

Seed from the bottom
of the parakeet cage
cascades over a ledge
and down the red brick wall.

An assortment of weeds
sprouts in the lily bed,
slender shoots, an offering
to the gardener's cupped hand.

A tiger striped kitten
pounces on a mound
of fresh green leaves
shimmying up a cross breeze.

A young girl returns
to her bedroom window,
sowing seed to the wind--
The gardener waits.

Retired Seaman

The captain sits
at the breakfast table
scrimshawing voyages.
Cafe curtain sails
billow in morning's bluster.

His shore wife leans
over the porch railing,
aging figurehead
counting goldfish
in a landlocked pond.

The clapboard house lists,
half-foundering to port.
