past the open doors
of a stalled train
birdsong enters

the mischievous cat
curls up on the windowsill
plans her next attack

early morning meows
outside the bedroom door
cat adoption blues

squinting eyes
brownstone behind a window

birdsong enters

~~

children found in ash
can't see or feel the sunlight
*duas blurred by war

*duas-Arabic: plural for dua, a prayer of supplication


~~


slender branches
dress in white petals
April bouquets


~~


sipping golden milk 
turmeric sunshine
on a cold March night

~~

frozen crocuses
inside a Brooklyn garden
March lives in the fridge

~~

Daylight saving time
jet lag in Brooklyn
is no vacation

~~


squinting 
behind my shades
afternoon sun

~~

loss of flowers
hang stolen trust
outside my door


~~

the cat enjoys fresh snowfall
but the squirrel hides
under the a/c

~~

by the window
a snowflake meltdown
amuses the cat

vapor clouds 
rise from my teapot
Winter cold blues

as the kettle boils
snowflakes slide down
the kitchen window
