a last note of florida

penny & the ume

flying north late afternoon
interstate 4 skirts Daytona
& its armies of chrome
she had her eyes out the windows
& needed to stop
excited cries in the backseat
"stop!"
passing plum trees in a stranger's yard
she wants to leap
the highway barriers
& lines of traffic
to steal Japanese plums
from the roadside
& this morning
of this last day
in the state of sunshine
they are here,
nestled between shade
& long leaves
plums hiding for the perfect moment
unripe but full of promise
& fuzzy with portents.

I think my new slogan needs to be "My life is fuzzy with portents".
