starfade—

the first trace of dawn

darkens the heavens                                                     John

 

            the silhouette

            of a passing jogger                                              Michael

 

deep in the weeds

the cat lies hidden—

its eyes ablaze                                                                   John

 

vacant lot—

a forgotten ball glove

catches morning light                                                     Michael

 

            bare-faced I see

            new colors in the dew                                       John

 

almost faded
into sunlight
old moon                                                                             Michael
