Afternoon Light

a trickle of juice
from the just cut melon
late summer

the retired scarecrow
at the head of the table

approaching autumn
the crackle
of footsteps

from deep in the leaf pile
a child’s laughter

football practice
a boy lost inside
his equipment

a father shouts
from the sidelines

the geometry
of afternoon light

the shaded areas
we used to share

Composed via email over the fall of 2013
