poppies

waking up from a dream to read
headlines of the morning’s paper
with coffee in your cup…
oh, my, what have I done!
no, what time had it happened
read again the hour better inside
the wall’s clock: tick-tock tick-tock
into the sun bleached bluffs
the wain with single ox leading
ahead of a storm takes hold above
places back an evening before
rome became dark.

About KatherinePopeWolcott

currently compiling thoughts/writings -- notebooks full, pulled apart and put back together and then something new, and here it all comes. two books being finished in the interim. Sometimes really frustrating. I remain with little interest in attempting to learn the "how to" parts of blogging because I'm technically inept, so multiple limitations are always present; just try not to think about... but other creations coming soon -- I think I am able to scan/pdf; what I am currently working on (paintings and photos and painted photos) once finished; or get someone else to do it for me.
