The River (New Poem) 5/9/14
The grass is still wet from the rain.
No cars or trucks are on the road.
The moon is hiding behind a blanket of hazy clouds.
All the small shops and local restaurants hang the familiar
"Closed" sign upon their doors.
While families rest peacefully in their beds a single porch light
shines on through out the night.
Somewhere in the darkness a neighborhood cat roams about.
The only sound outside is the calm and comforting river current flowing by.
