The cat and the mug
stand out so
There is the hose looped
snug at the side of the house,
cream chipping paint around a door,
the edges of a tea bag,
wooden deck scratched by claws, snow shovels, muddy love feet.
And the sun, trickster, sensual rays in the corner.
If you let your eyes relax, or completely close,
can you sense air?
…the feeling of sweet relief?
