“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

the everything of tuesday morning

tuesday smells of early morning dew
and
heat
and
the awakenings of birds,
doors and windows opened one by one as the skies lighten
barely,
barely,
more,
more,
until sunlight,
and
yesterday's mushrooms
are no longer white against the summer green of grass already warm,
and
leaves are scattered from last night's secret breezes.

the cat's ears turn east and west,
deciding west,
and she disappears to my left.
i track her movements by the birds gone silent.
