fragile


boulder serving as seat

fog lifting and laurel


leaves blushing red

under autumn’s bold gaze


peregrine falcon

floating above


riding currents

into the heavens


this peace

let’s take it with us


roll and pack it like a shirt

we’ll shake out to wear


tomorrow, pull it tight

against our skin as


the workday begins
