The Memory Thief - July 21, 2022

monstrous maples

skyscraping oaks neck-bending elms

their green balm slathers me

I walk invited by the shade

robins that fly

through the silence

fishing for worms

on endless seas of lawn

the youthfulness of June

a vacationing sun

dragging suitcases

of white clouds behind her

an east coast summer

begins as I leave

just a visitor

on old turf

a memory thief

with a bag

of old coins

free to go unnoticed

everyone here

too busy


the present
