My Porch View


The shadow of the old America flag waves~

In the afternoon sun~

Last time it was raised~

Was oh so long ago~

Because it was something my~

Father had always done.

This morning a Black-capped Chickadee~

Rested on the edge of the porch~

Telling me something~

I know not what?

Just a while ago I saw a resident bobcat~

Meander through the yard~

He upped his pace~

When he heard me move~

To the woods he went as I stood.

My porch view is where I see~

This nature~

My porch view~

Is where I see these treasures.

Is there room on the porch for one more? It sounds so peaceful and better than the cubicle I sit in now. Jamie
