Indian summer
and there is longing
in the katydid’s song
I tell him I, too,
have my regrets

  another year
slipping through my fingers ...
a bird on the wing
swoops out of sight
before I can name it

    my father gone
return by ones
to the feeder
my mother fills

endings in my life
always seem to coincide
with the season
the geese have all flown south
and a north wind blows cold

  on the way home
I rest my hand on your knee
as tears tumble
words echo in the silence ...
nothing more we can do

    all the answers
which elude me even now
and here
grass heads nodding
as if they understand
