Muted Sunlight _ new June poem 2017

"Muted Sunlight"

Muted sun at dawn

A bird chirping 

Diesel engine running 

Two sounds trying

Accents from hissing

Car tires and rain

Rolling by moving on

Inside the town

We walk around

Listening to sounds

Washing away the dirty

Remnants of a hurricane 

Who killed a 10 yr old 

In Alabama - Cindy

Lordy it was windy

In water muted sunlight 

Colored bulbs on display 

Inside a store window

Witness to misty rain

And outlines of hills

Clock tower in fog

Recalling he was once

A favored court jester to

The king until he died 

Then he realized he 

Was alone among spies

Feeling so alone and 

Looking for a home 

Every place he roamed 

The time was so real

Nothing sugar coated 

But a paid for trip

And the family seal 

Securing the deal

St. Stephen on stand by

In the garden with a rose

By the muted sun he goes

7:00 a.m.
