The first lizard (of spring 2018)

the better part of the day

after work
throwing a ball for over-excited hounds

young mockingbird perches
daily witness
to ball fetchers
to frisbee catchers
adding notes daily
a new song performed
atop a pomegranate plant
unruly crowding the fence

and this week
Tuesday
placing a shovel in the shed
a fat gecko scurried away

after work
a better
smiling
part of the day
