afternoon | A Poem by Rick Davis | PAROUSIA Magazine

 

quiet
blends
with the sounds
of the frig
and hesitant
rain drops
sliding down
smudged windows

blackie,
the timid
feral cat

visits,
and I

give her food
in grey
rain.

i close
my eyes
and notice

my expanding
consciousness

streaming
in silver
light

touching God.
