we can’t imagine

we can’t imagine
what autumn will bring this year,
and we count ourselves

lucky to be still standing,
ready to walk across that bridge

august arrives, and

august arrives, and
of course, we are not ready –
we have never been

ready, arriving at this
corner, year after year, stunned

in the backyard,

in the backyard,
the hummingbirds
are exhibiting
territorial
behavior over the last
day of August,
charging at one
another into dusk

a paper toss

a paper toss

or what is left

there is magic in
a leap year, whether

corner of our
brain that is not
averse to trying
something new,
just for today,
just this year
