SUNDAY AFTERNOON

Musings from a writer's journal
Early Poetry
1996

Twas a lovely Sunday afternoon.

The sun filled the sky.

It pealed through green velvet curtains,

and put dust before my eye.


In the musty room I sat inhaling

the smell of vintage books

I lounged upon a settee chair

a sip of wine I took.


It was quite brisk and sour

but I paid no mind.

I gazed into the corner

at a rotten orange rind.


My hair was flowing freely

enchanted by the light.

My feet were bare and thin.

I had been here all the night.


There, a stash of scattered books

lying on the ground.

I considered their ruffled pages.

I did not make a sound.


Twas a typical Sunday afternoon

lazing away in the house.

I dozed away, wine in hand

as quiet as a mouse.
