couched in stagnation         looking out the window across
to a large maple tree     whispering leaves move gently
messages are released by a fluttering leaf

a large solitary beetle whizzes past searching

stuck thru a pane of glass light     green leaves brighten with dramatic changes

another bug dive bombs off a leaf down to the ground out of my line of vision             the birds are gone     we haven’t fed them in weeks     they will survive it is summer     raspberries have ripened

immobilized by indecision     my mind cannot wrap itself around action                     many things will never be done.

blood percolates     nerves attack blood vessels with restless energy                                 motionless at the glass     sun set as orange purple and pink becomes blackness     at night shadowy leaves can barely be seen moving

I stumble off to bed
