Companionship

The ancient eavesdropper

Mountains
of warm laundry
piled on the bed —
our two cats
nestled on top —
asleep & content.

Dark clouds
follow the crow
feathers rain
down.

Driving home
crossing under the flyway
geese honk & fertilize
my windshield.   

          Rain
           drops
      drip
            their
     way
          down
     the
          leaves
        of
            a
          t
          r
          e
          e

Trees
writing
poems
on each
passing
cloud —
their
skyward
scrawl
read
around
the
world —
inspiring
life.

Rain pelts
alder trees —
catkins fall
into the creek —
tiny rafts of
seeds floating

    I can smell the laundry, hear the cats’ containment, count the rain of dark feathers… 🙂

  4. Wow, Tyler this is an amazing write. Lovely 🙂 I’ve missed reading you…

    • Thank you kindly, my friend 🙂 Good to see you again. I’m glad you enjoyed my poem. Thinking of companionship today makes me happy & sad. On Thursday, my wife and I had to put down our dog, Izzy. It was so sudden and we are reeling and in shock. She was only 7 years old…but she had legions on her spine that created a bulging disk and the swelling around the spinal cord was too significant to fix with surgery. She is no longer in pain and for that I am grateful. But I miss her so much. She made our world better by just being her loving self. A true friend and companion until the end. So many fond memories to cherish forever. I hope you are doing well & having a wonderful weekend, Melanie 🙂
      Your friend,
      Tyler 🙂
