getting through the morning
one chore at a time

the candle in the window
still burning at dawn

two old soldiers
at the bar

shells neatly stacked
in other shells—
the moonlit sea

In her passing glance
summer
arrives

   new of his death
the last of the soup
   grows cold

winter moon
her cat nudges in
through the closing door
