Morning Notations

cool air’s visitation                        a delightful surprise in

these dog days of summer                as they tap my face

newspaper clutched in fist

I gave waist a slight twist

a dog walker with      two humongous mastiffs,

on a stoop    forlorn army boots, coat      missing warm body

morning commuter        with ears plugged

canned music and              jaunty cap tilt, coffee mug

a rotund middle aged     office goer sober,     breaking into

a sunny smile at                    my cheery greeting however

jostling yellow leaves          at my feet from parent trees

I returned indoors,                               upbeat, to refill my cup of coffee
