Waning Moon

waning moon
one by one
they leave home

Julie

sleeping in
on the first day of school

Angie

an empty nest
under the dusty miller
yard cleanup

Cara
running the dishwasher
every other day
Julie

wondering where
the music has gone
winter rain

Angie

returning geese
announce their presence

Cara


A Different Blue

the fawn’s fading spots
dismantling
the swing set

Julie

wine on the terrace
instead of soccer practice

Angie

rattling seedpods
a large box of clothes
for Goodwill

Cara

the stationary storm door
free of fingerprints

Julie

all the leaves
gone now –
the sky a different blue

Angie

the chirp of my cell phone
when I least expect it

Cara

Grade Five Rapids

grade five rapids
riding out
the teen years

Julie

a two-seater sports car
for my 50th birthday

Angie

college brochures
on the coffee table
autumn color

Cara

reinstituting
date night

Julie

driftwood on the beach
we pause
uncertain

Angie

the first raindrops
send us scrambling for shelter

Cara
