Merry Old Month of May: 11-Generation

Daily Prompt:  Generation



The secret to the

generation of

competing mockingbirds,

one a neighborhood street over,

with brightness just west

and a few lightpoint stars overhead;

while crickets strum the file

and a lazyslow plane with tandem wing lights

buzzes high and summer in the darkening sky,

and a slight cool breeze plays my face

as I porch-perch until the cookie timer buzzes inside.



The blue never quite comes through just right.


For the month of May, I will be posting something daily, namely some kind of respond to The Daily Post’s daily prompt or some other prompt, unless a poem or post visits me of its own accord, unbidden and welcomed.
