deep into the wail

blue again
no summer sky
blue…that blue
deep into the wail
of a saxophone blue*

feeling blue all day and anxious –  that ‘late summer is slipping away feeling’ and I’m not sure I’m ready to let it go and then there’s an earthquake on the east coast that everyone felt but me even though I’ve rattled through two or more before this one

earthquake…the night wobbles anyway**

late summer edges begin to fray the sepia tone sunset

oh well, late summer blues and sepia tones are also fruit to taste and savor for their own ripe richness

deep ridges
       in a piece of driftwood
               …wanting more
