Observation - September 2nd, 2017


It is cool in the house
The cool of early September, it will give way
To warmth in the day, then dissipate

There is ragweed in the air
The pollen is scratching my throat
Raking my sinuses, my head is pounding

The phlox outside my kitchen window
Bears the softest tone, a shade of matted fuchsia  
Rising against the cedar fence

My cat is sleeping on her blanket
Her tawny gray head resting on her soft white paw

The streets are quiet
