neat brown seaside house
in a smart row of them

but this one has
a window

that is not centered

it is to the left
and no doctor can fix it

palm trees are long
swaying over green benches

a hush that says you

the sky is gray
but later the sun

will get through

waking men and women
of industry and promotion

gentle shiny cars
will nose out of garages

streets where

random thoughts
drive gentle shiny cars


Southern California
The day after the Summer Solstice

nice words and even nicer imagery; precise and impressionistic

I find it is hard to write about ordinary things, things I see every day. I am trying to do this more.
