eyes
constantly
giving once-overs
to now environs
find beauty
in every day
living
~
children
on scooties
anxiously followed
by mommy, daddys
~
the two little
girl friends I made
yesterday named
Emma and Chloe
at the corner of my
street – their shyly
diffident smiles
bowled over  my
heart completely
~
pumpkins
still lingering
on stoop steps
of brownstones
appear as drunks
nursing
hangovers
or guests
who’ve outstayed
welcomes
~
admixed
on pavements
are myriad candy
wrappers with ocher
leaves, remnants
of halloween kiddie
parades’ jamborees
~
head
never buried
in cell phones
rather open
to life
palms
these soft curly
moments
cuddling
them warmly
~
