Poem from What's Left

Still

A newborn, home, sleeping.
Trees wait for the wind to stroke their leaves.
Water lily on small pond in the park.
Watching the sun move to the horizon.
The nude statue of David in the Louvre.

After fifty years of marriage, his touch.
The moon closer to the earth than before.
The Ferris wheel at the top of the turn.
Tears poised to drop as a favorite song plays.
Your breath when the brakes give way.
