Joan McNerney

Dusk

Evening is coming…
the dawn of nighttime.

Summer Solstice

Tonight is fragrant with 
sweet blooming jasmine.

Skyward

Galaxies of bugs
orbiting around
fragrant pine trees.

Shut Eye

Black and white kitten
lying under clothesline in
soft circles of sleep.

Advice

Try to catch the wind.
Count the ripples in the sea.
Become a child again.
