Fifteen Minues After Three

Updated on February 27, 2012

Fifteen minutes after three.
I look out beyond
The neatly patterened homes
Into the cold blue-gray background.
A pine sways slightly,
Alone -
Against the empty background.
Stillness is abundant-
Leaveless trees stand rigidly
In the bitter bite of the air.
Only the dull green pine
Colors the sullen world
At fifteen minutes after three

      Throwing some poetry out there too. Something a bit bland to start.
