What I call a copy/write from my first day of Teachers Write 2014! In the lingo of TW....this is a WIP ( with huge, gigantic apologies to Robert Frost).

I'm going out back
with the dog to the swing
carrying coffee and my notebook.
I'll just write a note to morning
seeing how she's new.

I'll join the receiving line
of color shaking off the dew
petals in the garden widening smiles
for serious shoppers
and sleepy browsers
touching sleeves and hems
on the way to mid-day.

My pen answers early doves
between sips and sighs with squiggles
jabbering with the robins of
rushing sprinklers
shushing tires turning toward highways
not yet wavy with heat.

You come too.
