Sunshine Morning

She sits by the flowers
woman, of the fence line window
.view thru the vase,
line button _ belly flush to the sink
.petal Trimmings, bottom of steel
paint peeling from the old lane lumber.

bicycle leans on the post
sock feet _ wreath anklet
crown at the deadline
get on your bike and leave
hips that push the thoughts
of watching from behind.

-gravel runway, shoulder length grain
or hay…

it doesn’t matter-

hands resting around steel top ledge,
body _ still, still at the sink and dreaming
.does heaven exist after
Anklet crown on pedal –
daydream existence _ reality
bare bicycle, cycling
golden grain away.
