North Bergen, NJ (hometown)

ImageRoof Deck

Dawn pushes away the empty blackness

To dance on the pink, yellow, blue-gray houses

Of the neighbors

Their vinyl glistening of morning dew

The morning doves

Coo on top of air conditioners

Sparrows excessive chirping

Their mating rituals as they fly from

Rooftop to gutters

My moist back yard dirt,

Robins look for worms

The big brown cauldron looking planter

Is coming alive with strawberries

I am allergic to them

I grow them for John

The lilies have started

Their assent from the urn

I planted them in last year

The steel 3 foot trough like planter

My herbs

Early morning on my roof deck

My oasis

Then the cars start going by

The train in the meadows toots

7:00am everyone up

The 100 year old house groans

The dogs need letting out

A crane flies west overhead

Somewhere for the East or Hudson Rivers

To the Meadowlands, Hackensack River

Time to make the coffee

What Have I been up too?

I have been balancing my life with the two love of my world.  The love of writing and the love for creating (watercolor) at the moment.  In trying to balance what I would like to do first, I get flustered and annoyed and end up stalling on my energy.  Life and circumstances have made creating difficult.  Either I am too busy, or I am too exhausted.  I cannot win right now.  Things will be better in a few days>>>>> So I will Just wait
