a beautiful orange leaf twirl from its branch
and land gently on the lawn
a family of racoons wander through my garden.
the mom led the way and the babies followed so nicely
two gray haired women laughing together in a car.
i wondered what pain and joy their lives had held
a smiling face blowing me kisses at the window
when i returned from the specialist
bright blue sky
one lonely sweet pea left on the vine
all pink and lipstick kissed
a pair of feather earings lying carelessly on the table
but they confirm that for now we are all home
kindness in the eyes of others as i process
my appointment results
