Like an Apology - May 2, 2022

the wind shifts

bucking from slow

to fast haltingly

to think of the words

and catch the breath


to say it’s sorry

now for what’s

soon to come -

a big mess in the

pool and the yard


which is more than I get

from the rest of life

that shows up without

warning certainly

never with contrition


especially grief
