The sun a disk of light. The flowers of purple nectar. My mind reflects. I am here. Yet, I am also with the women marching today…

Today was the Women’s March

Many cities and even in Washington DC

They are marching …

I felt connected to it all-

Yet today we cleaned the gutters,

As husband was on the roof

With a long powerful hose,

I waited to clean

the dark

Mud leaves and earthy smelling mire-slush.

As I waited,

I investigated the pool

Clean and blue

I saw the sun

A round perfect sun.

Bright and surrounded

By clouds

as many cauliflowers

And I thought…

“How lovely and bright the sun is, will it hurt my eyes to stare so long?”

I kept looking into the pool

Watching the sun.

A reflection in a clean pool.

A crow flew between us,

The whole reflection and my single view of the sun.

Droplets from the power hose

Rippled in the pool water

I looked away…

A hummingbird stopped in front of me,

Long enough to see a red beating breast.

Then was gone.

I gazed at the sun

The grey clouds

The ripples in the clean pool.

I also thought upon the women’s march…

Earlier, I was in front of my home

I studied the falling rosemary

Exploding with fresh, delicate purple flowers.

The rain also brought the many marching honeybees.

The sun a disk of light. The flowers of purple nectar. My mind reflects. I am here. Yet, I am also with the women marching today…

Today was the Women’s March

Many cities and even in Washington DC

They marched…
