Notifications from the Passing Rain – A Poem

 

Notifications from the Passing Rain

Painting morning meditation
in discarded coarse bouquets
in broken glass
in the zeal of an empty decanter.

Notifications from the passing rain
sweet with soft
regret
pretends resolutions in a marginal
wind
blowing through a screen door.

Juniper berries boiling in a pot of water
on the stove
accents the rooms.
The fragrant steam
breathing across clouded mirrors
where life
appears and disappears.

Time corrupts a narrow space and then
retreats under a layer of
unopened mail
on the counter.

A jubilant memory hungers just outside.
