No one passed

Sultry. That was today. I went outside briefly for an errand, and then I fled back inside. More work today – little prep for tomorrow (but not enough, to be honest), more TV, and then I wrote today’s haiku (Prayer) in honor of my sib, and then I queued up the next 10 Ezzie reruns on EJO.

Nothing particularly creative today. I made vegetable soup in the crock-pot for dinner tonight, which I’ll need to deal with shortly. (Gee, I almost typed crackpot.)

Hardly anyone walked past my window today. Nothing to stir the juices.

I sat and waited
but no one passed
no sign of life today

not a faerie, nor pixie
to light up my day
nor my night

the ghosts are asleep
no souls to reap today
no, not today

Mr Grim is idle
sickle absently thumbed
my day deserted

the angels sleep 
like the dog in sunlight
no souls to save

while the birds slept
no one passed
no sign of life today
